Counseling and Wellness Services (CWS) can help with any mental health concerns you might experience, including stress, anxiety, alcohol or drugs, eating, depression, family issues, suicidal thoughts, and more.
We offer virtual individual counseling, group counseling, wellness workshops, referrals, and long-term psychiatric medication services. Except for psychiatric services, they are provided at no cost.
If you need to speak to a counselor, but don't have an appointment, call (212) 443-9999 to arrange a Virtual Drop-in.
Counseling is a professional relationship that helps you clarify issues, discover your true wishes and feelings, and deal effectively with problems. Virtual counseling is available on a short term or drop-in basis. For longer-term treatment, referrals to off-campus providers are available.
Wellness Workshops (previously called "Toolkits") are free and confidential classes held via Zoom throughout the semester on a variety of topics — including insomnia, public speaking, anxiety, biofeedback, and more. Some meet once per month, while others meet more frequently.
Psychiatric medication services are available virtually if you require assessment and treatment with psychiatric medications. CWS professionals will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for you.
