Maintaining balance and stability.

Mental Health is a state of psychological and emotional well-being.  And it’s a key partner to physical health.

At NYMC, students are encouraged to use our Student Mental Health and Wellness Services—just as you might use a gym—to keep yourself mentally and emotionally fit for the joys and challenges of academic life and beyond.

In addition to our Mental Health and Wellness Counseling Services, NYMC offers classes and tools to help students stay balanced and centered.
