You Are Welcome Here
Due to COVID-19 and health recommendations the Counseling Service has shifted its service model to provide consultation and therapy via a tele-health platform, Therapy Assistance Online (TAO). This new model will be evolving as the situation changes and will be in effect until Vassar College returns to its regular operating procedures.
As of June 15 the Counseling Service will be closed for the summer and will reopen on August 15th. Learn more about how to access mental health care this summer.
Statement of Solidarity
The Vassar College Counseling Service staff stand together with all who have been impacted by recent and longstanding race-based oppression and violence. We recognize that these tragedies are especially injurious to people of color and members of our Black and African-American community. With our collective anger, heartbreak, and sorrow, we condemn structural and systemic racism and state unequivocally that there should be no place for it in our Vassar community or the larger world. We join others in our commitment to social justice and will continue to engage in anti-racist work towards building an equitable, inclusive, and just society.
With love and concern, we offer self-care resources for our students.
Vassar College Counseling Service (VCCS) welcomes students of all backgrounds and experiences. We are here to support you.
A variety of services are provided to Vassar students such as individual, couples, and group counseling, crisis intervention, walk-in clinic, educational programming, consultation, assessment, and referrals to off-campus mental health professionals.
We work with students with concerns about roommates, the transition to college, procrastination, difficulty in all types of relationships, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation and eating concerns/disorders, among many others. If it is a problem to you, then it is a problem to us.
All services are free and confidential.
