Wellness Exchange and Counseling Services

The Wellness Exchange is your greatest mental health resource at NYU. Call the 24-hour hotline at (212) 443-9999, chat via the Wellness Exchange app anytime, make an appointment, or arrange a same-day Urgent Counseling session to speak with a certified counselor about any day-to-day challenges or health concerns, including medical issues, stress, depression, sexual assault, anxiety, alcohol or drug dependence, and eating disorders.

No concern is too big or too small. Worried about a friend? Our counselors are here for that too — in person, over the phone, or through chat. The Wellness Exchange is here for you, whatever the reason. Not sure which option is right for you? Call or chat with our counselors to discuss your options and find the right fit.
