Counseling Center Extends Hours, Hosts Group Therapy Sessions for Grad Students
At Syracuse, supporting the health and well-being of our graduate students is a continuous commitment. Ensuring that all graduate students have access to quality, affordable healthcare coverage, and providing comprehensive mental health and counseling services is a top priority.
Our on-campus Counseling Center, located at 200 Walnut Place (315.443.4715), is at the heart of this effort, providing support during times of crisis, providing advocacy, promoting personal growth and supporting academic success. All graduate students have full access to the center’s confidential services, which include individual and group therapy sessions on a range of topics as well as support on substance abuse, sexual assault and relationship violence-related issues. For more information on the Counseling Center’s services, please visit the Counseling Center’s website.
To meet the needs of students with less traditional schedules, especially among graduate students, the Counseling Center added evening hours (until 7 p.m.) on Mondays and Thursdays this semester. Because of the positive response, we will extend evening hours to four days per week beginning in the fall semester.
Also, to answer specific requests from graduate students, the Counseling Center is currently hosting two group therapy sessions each week specifically for graduate students to talk through issues such as stress management. There are currently two spots left in the graduate students group at 3 p.m. on Tuesdays for those who are interested. Click here for information on group therapy.
Should you have any questions or want access to services, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Counseling Center at 315-443-4715.
