Mental Health Services

Welcome! Our team of psychologists, social workers, nurse practitioners, and psychiatrists is committed to supporting you throughout your time as a student at CUIMC.  We encourage you to reach out with any questions or concerns.  

We offer a consultation service that provides assessment, short-term individual and group psychotherapy, psychiatric evaluation and initiation of treatment, as well as linkage to community-based provider for ongoing treatment, as is clinically appropriate.  Currently all services are being provided virtually. 

We see approximately one third of students on campus and are comfortable treating anxiety, depression, trauma, struggles adjusting to grad school, relationship issues, experiences of bias, discrimination and harassment, eating disorders, and substance abuse, among other concerns. 

Contact and visits are confidential, except in those rare instances of imminent risk of harm to self or others, or where otherwise required by law. 

There are no out-of-pocket costs as services are covered under your Health and Related Services Fee. 

Making an Appointment

If you are new to MHS, please schedule an Initial Telephone Appointment with the clinician of your choice through the health portal.   You will then be sent a Zoom link for an audio-only appointment.  At that appointment you and the clinician will discuss together what you are currently experiencing and what makes the most sense as a next step. 

You may also call us at (212) 305-3400 to schedule an appointment.

Emergencies

If you or a friend have an immediate concern about suicide, call 212-305-3400 and state that it is an emergency. You may also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or walk yourself or friend to the nearest Emergency Room.

Urgent Care

If you have an urgent medical or mental health concern we can help you determine what care you need and how best to get it. Call us 24/7 at 212-305-3400.  

When we're closed your call will be answered by our after-hours clinical service.  You will speak with a clinician and may be connected with an on-call medical or mental health provider.  

During business hours your call will be answered by our team and directed appropriately.
