Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC)
Welcome to the Counseling and Wellness Center CWC. Our office helps
students handle personal and psychological problems. These problems
include stress, homesickness, loneliness, anxiety, depression, family
conflicts, identity issues, cultural concerns, eating concerns, low
self-esteem, study problems, worries about the future, and alcohol or
drug problems. Whatever is bothering you, if you can't handle it on your
own, CWC is here to help.
Setting up an appointment is easy. You may call 212-774-0700 or drop by our office in Main #806.
A staff member will then briefly speak to you prior to scheduling a
full visit with one of our counselors. All services are free of charge
and, except in rare cases such as a life-threatening emergency,
completely confidential. No one outside of CWC will know about your
Our staff is made up of clinical psychologists, a clinical social worker, a psychiatrist, and advanced doctoral psychology trainees. All of us are experienced in and enjoy working with students.
CWC offers a variety of services: short-term individual counseling, psychiatric services (to evaluate students for prescription medications), health and wellness workshops and programs, and referrals for care in the community. Nutrition appointments are also available on Mondays by calling 212-774-0700.
CWC is committed to working with all students from our diverse and inclusive community. Counselors are sensitive to the issues of the LGBTQ community and of students of color. All students should expect to be treated with respect and understanding.
Don't hesitate to let us know how we can be of help to you.
