The Counseling Center staff provide services to currently enrolled Manhattan College students. Those who utilize the services of the Center present a wide variety of problems and concerns, such as adjustment to college, homesickness, resolving conflicts, improving relationships, reducing stress, coping with feelings of anxiety or depression, and concerns about alcohol or other substance abuse. In addition, Center staff provide consultation services by phone or in office to those members of the Manhattan College academic community who have questions or concerns about how to help others (e.g., friend, family member, student) as well as referrals to community resources.
All services of the Counseling Center are confidential. Records maintained in the Counseling Center are separate from the college academic records. All staff members of the Counseling Center adhere to professional and ethical standards regarding confidentiality. The limits of confidentiality are discussed with each student at the first session.
The Counseling Center is located in Miguel Hall, Room 501. Appointments are recommended (call ext. 7394), however, walk-ins are accommodated as quickly as scheduling permits. The office is open weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and evenings by appointment.
