The Student Counseling Service at Downstate is part of the Student Health Service and provides free and confidential counseling and psychological services to all matriculating Downstate Medical students (College of Medicine, Nursing, Health Related Professions, School of Graduate Studies and the Masters of Public Health Program).
At SCS, we strive to offer a safe and supportive environment where students are able to work in collaboration with counselors to address their needs and goals. Students are encouraged as they process concerns around academic and professional development, as well as those concerns regarding personal growth, psychological well-being, and quality of life. Seeking support can be difficult, and we recognize that efforts to do so represent a great deal of strength and resilience. The SCS is willing to discuss any questions students may have about the counseling process, and whether it may be the right choice for them.
In addition, SCS provides outreach services as well as consultation to friends, faculty, and staff members who are concerned about a Downstate student. Please do not hesitate to contact the SCS to ask questions or to make an appointment.
