Student Counseling Center

College can often be a source of unanticipated pressure, and it is common for students to feel overwhelmed or to have difficulty in dealing with stress. The Student Counseling Center (SCC) provides free, private, and confidential services to any student enrolled at Adelphi.

The SCC is staffed by a psychiatrist, licensed clinical psychologists, social workers, graduate-level social work interns, and doctoral level clinical psychology interns.

The Center provides information and literature and offers:

  • individual and group counseling
  • crisis intervention
  • outreach and consultation
  • drug and alcohol education and counseling
  • workshops
  • referrals to both on-campus and off-campus resources.

Students are encouraged to meet with a counselor even if they are not sure that they need counseling. Any students facing the following common problems are encouraged to see a counselor:

  • issues of self-esteem
  • depression
  • anxiety, confusion, or stress
  • loneliness
