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. Our skilled, compassionate and professional mental health clinicians are here for students as a resource, advocate and liaison — ensuring that no matter the need, they have access to the right care, when they need it.
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.
