Student Mental Health Resources

Student health and wellness are important for academic success. While the Touro Graduate School of Education does not offer on-campus mental health services, the GSE Wellness Coordinator is available to help students find affordable community treatment for personal, emotional, or substance abuse problems so that they may benefit fully from their academic experience.  Consultations are confidential. The Wellness Coordinator may be reached at WellnessGSE@touro.edu. When contacting the Wellness Coordinator, be sure to use your Touro e-mail address.
