The team of Student Support & Counseling is part of the Office of Student Health & Wellness in the Division of Student Affairs. The objective is to provide students with a central point for wellness support and resources at Teachers College. We’re available to meet with you by appointment only to provide referrals, resources, and orientation on mental health services. In addition, we offer short-term mental health counseling sessions for students unable to find a therapist or an adequate resource for support.
Additionally, our office conducts informational sessions throughout the year to bring awareness and support around mental health.
Consultations and sessions are free of charge to any TC student, regardless of course load, insurance plan, or payment of the Columbia Health Fee. To make an appointment for a consultation click here, we'll reach back to you as soon as possible with a date and time.
For any other questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call and leave a message at 212-678-7432.
