Students interested in individual or group counseling opportunities, as well as information regarding low-cost referrals for more extensive counseling can schedule an appointment by calling 212-998-4780.

In addition, the Student Health Center's Counseling and Wellness Services also sponsors programs and services to assist students. For more information, see the Counseling Services website
