The team of Student Support & Counseling is part of the Office of Student Health & Wellness in the Division of Student Affairs. Student Support and Counseling serves as a first point of contact for the Teachers College community to assist in developing short term wellness plans to reduce stress, improve performance and connect students to resources to support their bio-psychosocial-spiritual development.
When a student is interested in speaking with a member of the office of Student Health and Wellness they are asked to complete an online request. At that time, they will be scheduled for a wellness consult or a wellness intake.
If a staff member is interested in speaking with a member of the Student Support and Counseling team or referring a student they must complete a faculty referral form. A member of the student support and counseling team will reach out to the staff member to determine next step and assist in the development of an action plan
