The Counseling Center's mission is to provide high-quality, confidential psychological services that facilitate student progress toward age-appropriate, healthy and mature psychological and social development. These include counseling, prevention and crisis services focused on emotion-regulation and self-care, exploration of personal identities, establishing and maintaining healthy interdependent relationships, and developing life-skills necessary to thrive in adulthood. The Counseling Center also provides crisis services in support of safety of our students and the campus community, and provides psychological consultation to students, faculty, staff and families of our students.
The Counseling Center is accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services, Inc.
How To Get Help
Based on the NY Hero Act, the Counseling Center is limiting the attendance of in-person meetings. We will continue to provide walk-in Urgent Care services. Students can access services by calling the Counseling Center at (315) 781-3388.
Urgent care is available 24/7 via the Colleges' Crisis Counseling service, ProtoCall. If a student communicates any risk to self or others, you can call 315-781-3388 and press option 1 to connect them to these crisis services, call campus safety (315-781-3333) or call 911. You can also provide the Counseling Center phone number directly to students so that they can contact crisis services at any time.
As always the counseling Center will be available to consult with you if you have questions or concerns. If you need advice on how to help students in distress, please feel free to reach out directly to Jen (Hogan@hws.edu) or Tasha (Prosper@hws.edu) for further assistance.
