Medical Student Health & Wellness Services Mental Health Services for Medical Students

At NYU School of Medicine, we understand that the academically rigorous environment of medical school may cause unfamiliar stress. To help you deal with that stress, we provide free, confidential mental health services, by appointment.

Our Student Health Service provides short-term counseling. Issues we may be able to help with include the following:

  • depression
  • stress
  • anxiety disorders
  • alcohol or drug use
  • eating disorders
  • concerns about academic performance
  • roommate and friendship problems
  • family problems
  • sexual concerns
  • identity concerns

If we recommend long-term treatment beyond the initial counseling sessions, our psychiatrists refer you to a mental health specialist who can provide care tailored to your needs.

Mental health services for medical students are overseen by staff psychiatrist Khleber C. Attwell, MD. Call the Student Health Service to schedule an appointment.

For emergency mental health care when the Student Health Service is closed, call the office to obtain contact information for the psychiatrist on call or visit the nearest emergency room.
