Academic Distress

At various points in the semester, the demands of academic life can sometimes create distress for students. If you encounter a student with serious concerns about his or her academic work or other academic distress, please refer the student to the following resources:

Wellness Exchange

Through the Wellness Exchange, students, faculty and staff can reach mental health professionals who can help them address a student’s academic issues which are often accompanied by other underlying issues that could be improved, if addressed. Medical issues, depression, sexual assault, anxiety, alcohol and other drug dependence, sexually transmitted infections, eating disorders and financial issues often accompany academic stress. The Wellness Exchange can help the student (and the faculty and staff member), to develop a plan for addressing these issues. To reach the Wellness Exchange, dial the 24/7 hotline (212-443-9999). Students can call the hotline anonymously, if they prefer. Learn more...
