    Learn about the Counseling Center

    Students come to the FIT Counseling Center for assistance with a variety of personal and academic concerns. We encourage students to contact the Counseling Center when concerns are emerging and not to wait, as problems left untreated or unresolved can become much larger and affect ones personal and academic well-being.

    Our services are free to all registered, degree-seeking students and are private and confidential. 

    The Counseling Center now offers 30 minute mental health assessments, typically within 10 days of a student's initial request for treatment. One to three additional individual sessions may be offered to students on a case by case basis. Group referrals, as well as referrals to an outside resource will then be provided as needed. All students who are in crisis and need to be seen immediately will be given a same day risk-assessment to determine how best to proceed. In order to meet the increasing number of student requests for counseling in this timely manner, we are no longer able to offer 6 to 8 sessions per student. Students seeking weekly psychotherapy will be given a referral to a community provider who can provide longer term care. 

    In an emergency, call one of these numbers:

    • 911
    • Your local emergency care unit in connection with the nearest hospital.
    • 1-888-NYC-WELL (1-888-692-9355), press 2. This is a free, confidential, 24/7 information and referral crisis hotline offered by the Department of Mental Health and Hygiene, and Vibrant Emotional Health.
