The Counseling Staff Can Help

The Counseling Center offers a wide range of services to full-time undergraduate Manhattan College students, including short term individual therapy, groups, crisis intervention, substance abuse screenings, consultation, psychological education and referrals.

The Counseling Center clinicians are licensed psychologists, social workers and mental health counselors from different cultural and theoretical backgrounds. They guide students through the therapeutic process to increase awareness and develop healthy coping strategies around issues such as:

    • Psychological Issues – depression, anxiety, suicidality, eating disorders, addiction and substance abuse
    • Personal Concerns – academic difficulties, cultural and identity issues, gender, sexual orientation, self-esteem, family problems, stress management, concerns about friends
    • Interpersonal Issues – communication skills, dating and relationships, conflict management and resolution
    • Crisis Intervention – acute stress, sexual assault, death of a family member or friend

Make an Appointment

The Counseling Center is friendly and welcoming. The process of going did not add to the anxiety I was feeling and I felt safe to express my fears and concerns. Also I felt that the counselor really listened and cared about me.

The counseling services here have changed my entire experience at Manhattan College.
