Mental Health and Substance Abuse Resources


Student health and wellness are important for academic success. While NYSCAS does not offer on-campus mental health assessment or treatment services, the NYSCAS Wellness Counselor and the Touro College Director of Student Mental Health services are available to speak with students about personal, emotional, or substance abuse problems and help them find community treatment so that they may benefit fully from their academic experience.
