The adjustment to college life can be a stressful time for many young adults. Stevens Institute of Technology is committed to supporting our students who are experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts through our services, programs, and an overarching campus environment that feels inclusive and supportive.
The Office of Counseling and Psychological Services provides free and confidential counseling for Stevens students, along with workshops and educational interventions to promote awareness within the Stevens community.
Stevens works closely with the Jed Foundation toward the continued development and expansion of systems, programs, and policies that promote mental health and suicide prevention. In 2013, Stevens was awarded the JedCampus Seal as part of the first cohort of schools in the nation to achieve this recognition. The JedCampus Seal is awarded to colleges and universities that have shown they employ a comprehensive, community-based approach to mental health care which will result in the identification and care of at-risk students.
If you or someone you know is in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741.
