Counseling (Mental Health)
The campus counseling centers support the academic mission of the university and the academic success of students by providing high quality counseling and mental health services to students and consultative services to faculty and staff. Counselors assist students in addressing psychological and adjustment issues (i.e., depression, anxiety, and relationships) and problems or issues including stress/time management that can negatively impact academic performance, student retention, graduation rates, and quality of life. The Centers work collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to create and maintain a campus environment that encourages and supports psychological well-being.
Health Insurance Options
Important Student Health Insurance Update!
Please be advised that CUNY's student health insurance program with United Healthcare will not be offered in the 2014-15 academic year.
Students currently enrolled in the United Healthcare plan can maintain their insurance with United Healthcare through August of 2014. Please note, the discontinuation of the student health insurance plan is considered a qualifying event that will allow students who are currently enrolled in the plan to purchase insurance through the NY State of Health insurance exchange within 60 days of losing coverage. To avoid a lapse in coverage, please visit the NY State of Health website or call 1-855-355-5777. You must enroll by August 14th for coverage to begin September 1st, 2014. read more>>

For Parents and Guardians
As a parent, you may have concerns about how your student is doing at school. The first year is a particularly difficult transition for both parents and students. You are encouraged to contact your student's campus counseling center (see list of Campus Counseling Centers) with any concerns.
