Coronavirus Update: Campus Mental Health Services

Campus Mental Health will continue to provide counseling sessions for current clients via telephone. Any student interested in beginning services will need an intake evaluation in order to determine how to best meet his or her needs.

The resources of Campus Mental Health Services remain available to the College community during the period of campus closure. Students will be served on a telehealth basis; and may reach our office by telephone 934-420-2006 or e-mail cmhs@farmingdale.edu, checked throughout the day. Faculty and professional staff, please contact our office regarding any issues or concerns.

Campus Mental Health Services (CMHS) provides a wide range of professional counseling services to all students. These services are free. Accepted standards for confidentiality are followed at all times. Counseling is offered for individuals, couples, and groups. The effort is made to arrange meeting times that will fit with a student's academics schedule.

Among the areas that can be addressed through CMHS are anxiety and stress management, coping and problem-solving skills, relationship issues, depression, family crisis, trauma and loss, adjustment to college life and living, anger management, communication skills, substance use and abuse, and habit disorders.

Specialized assessment services can be arranged and a wide range of educational and personal growth-oriented programs are presented throughout the year in settings such as classrooms, residence halls, and student center meeting rooms, to provide members of the campus community with opportunities to explore areas of personal interest and development.

We strive to accommodate the unique needs of distance learning students.  Those interested in more information on services offered by CMHS for distance learning students may contact our office directly.

CMHS serves as a liaison and information source for students who may be best met by resources in the local community and strives to be available for a prompt response to urgent personal and community situations that may arise. For further information, call 934-420-2006 or e-mail us.

Important: If this is an urgent or emergency situation, please contact University Police at 934-420-2111 immediately. Do not use e-mail.
