Macaulay recognizes that the emotional wellbeing of young people is necessary for their peak performance, both as students and as leaders. Mental health issues can impede student success, particularly for Macaulay’s population of urban, underserved, often-first-generation students.
In 2016, Macaulay Honors College received a grant from the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust to build an innovative model of comprehensive mental health delivery for our students. With it we provide direct, professional mental health counseling services to support students in achieving their potential as scholars and change agents.
These services and programming, coupled with Macaulay’s personalized approach to students, builds a solid foundation upon which our students can affect meaningful global social change.
Students in need of immediate assistance or additional CUNY resources please contact your Macaulay advisor.
Healthy CUNY is a university-wide initiative to ensure that all CUNY students can reach their full academic potential. Mental health is a current priority area.
