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 individual counseling, group counseling, wellness workshops, referrals, and long-term psychiatric medication services. Except for psychiatric services, they are provided at no cost.

No problem is too big or too small: Call, chat, or drop in — or make an appointment today.



Counseling is a professional relationship that helps you clarify issues, discover your true wishes and feelings, and deal effectively with problems. Counseling is available on a short term or drop-in basis. For longer-term treatment, referrals to off-campus providers are available.

Wellness Workshops

Wellness Workshops (previously called "Toolkits") are free and confidential classes held 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.


Weekly groups provide an opportunity to gather with others going through similar challenges. Group sessions are free and confidential.


Psychiatric medication services are available if you require assessment and treatment with psychiatric medications. CWS professionals will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for you.


CWS offers free, non-judgmental, and confidential assistance to NYU students who have concerns related to their use of alcohol or other drugs. Learn about services for students in recovery, including the SAFE Program.
