Whether studying or performing research close to home, across the country, or in another part of the world, we understand the emotional and psychological aspects of academic life. We work 24 hours each and every day of the year to ensure that students have an array of resources including access to independent and confidential counseling support, expert guidance as well as referrals for counseling and psychotherapy face-to-face or via a secure video calling platform.
