Student Counseling Services

The Mercy College Student Counseling Services office offers psychological evaluation and brief treatment lasting one to eight sessions. Students in need of more intensive treatment are referred to local hospitals and clinics for long term psychotherapy and/or medication.

College students come to the Counseling Services office with mental health issues including increased stress, depression and anxiety as well as concerns about their academic progress, daily living, adjustment to college and relationships with others. 

Counseling can be an opportunity to talk about issues that are of concern to students with an objective person who can help them develop skills and view situations in ways that may enable them to be more effective in managing life's challenges down the road.

This service is for Mercy College students ONLY.  Full and part-time faculty, administrators and staff may contact the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) to obtain psychological services.
