Dear Students,

Congratulations on completing another extraordinary academic year! As we enter the final week of Mental Health Awareness Month, we are sharing important information with you regarding access to Columbia’s mental health resources.

Whether you’re staying in New York City, returning home, or traveling this summer, you can still access mental health resources wherever you are.

  • Morningside/Manhattanville Students:
    • If you are staying in New York: You can start or continue care with Counseling and Psychological Services by calling 212-854-2878. In addition, you can also register for Wellness Coaching* with Alice! Health Promotion, an evidence-based practice that takes a positive approach to personal development through centering individual strengths, values, and motivations to support behavior change(s) through a collaborative, non-judgmental partnership (*not therapy or counseling).  
    • For out-of-state/country: You can access mental health support through off-campus referrals and virtual support spaces. You may also schedule virtual counseling visits with WorkPlace Options using the student code “Columbia University”.
  • CUIMC Students:
