The Student Mental Health Program provides confidential, comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis of mental health/behavioral disorders and substance abuse problems.

You may contact Dr. Richard A. Friedman, the Director of the SMHP, directly: (212) 746-5775. You do not need a referral to do so.

If ongoing behavioral/mental health treatment is required, you may be referred to a member of the Student Mental Health Team to receive high-quality, confidential treatment, including various types of psychotherapy, pharmacotherapy, or both.
