regarding services during OUR remote learning period
Health Services and the Counseling Center are available to support students. During this interim period, as we work to finalize plans for referrals, crisis services, and tele-medicine for students living on campus, staff are available by phone and email. Please contact them to develop an individualized plan for your care. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please call the Counseling Center main number 518-580-5555 and follow the prompts to be connected with immediate assistance.
If you have the Skidmore student health insurance plan, you can access telemedicine, teletherapy and virtual ER visits, no matter where in the U.S. you’re located. This link provides more information on accessing those options: https://www.cdphp.com/members/wellness/common-health-topics/cold-and-flu/corona-virus/telemedicine.
Your student health plan also links you to a national network of providers. If you’re living away from campus, you’re welcome to call our office and we can help you access care in your community. You can also find doctors, pharmacies, etc. in your area at: https://www.cdphp.com/members/use-your-benefits/find-a-doctor.
Accessible, personAlized care
Skidmore’s Counseling Center offers confidential and professional mental health services to students struggling with a variety of social, emotional and psychiatric problems.

To access non-emergency counseling, call or visit the Counseling Center on the first floor of Jonsson Tower during business hours. We are open from 9 a.m. – noon and 1 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. during the school year. In the summer, we are open from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. and from noon to 3 p.m.
If you are in crisis or concerned about a Skidmore student in crisis, please call us 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 518-580-5555.
