Health Services for Students

Telehealth services and in-person services are available during regular business hours for health care.

Counseling Services for Students

A comprehensive array of services are available to help meet students’ mental health needs. The Counseling Center will deliver all services through Zoom Healthcare while remaining accessible for in-person contacts as necessary for emergencies. We will continue offering individual therapy, group therapy, psychiatric services, and 24/7/365 crisis and in-the-moment support, among other options. All clinical services will be provided in accordance with state and federal laws. If students seeking services are not in New York State, we will meet student needs as much as possible given existing laws and regulations.
