Students can call (212) 220-8140 to schedule an appointment.

Counseling provides a safe space for students to explore difficulties and understand what is keeping them from achieving their goals.  Counselors help students talk about their concerns and work toward removing the obstacles that keep them from reaching their goals.

If your counselor determines that your needs require resources beyond what the center can provide, your counselor will assist with a referral to an appropriate mental health provider or agency.

As you embark on your journey for a college degree, please remember that full counseling services are available in the Counseling Center in S-343.

Some of the services counselors provide are:

Personal/ Individual Counseling

The BMCC Counseling Center is committed to providing professional counseling for students on an individual basis. Students can discuss academic, personal, and career concerns.

There are counselors available to provide guidance and assistance with these and other issues. To meet with a counselor you should call (212) 220-8140, or stop by the Center (S-343) to schedule an appointment. Additionally, students can walk in for immediate assistance.

Counseling services are available in:
Hindi, French, Punjabi, and in Spanish.

Crisis Intervention

Crisis intervention is available as needed by counseling faculty and staff.

A crisis can be defined as an event which places an individual in a situation that was not planned or expected. Sometimes, these unexpected events can hinder the individual's capacity to function personally or academically. Counselors can help by providing an objective frame of reference within which to consider the crisis, discuss possible alternatives, and promote healthy functioning.

Here are some examples of possible crisis situations using statements:

  • "I'm only 18 years old, and here I am pregnant."
  • "I feel as if no one cares, I have no one to talk to, and I just don't know what to do."
  • "I couldn't deal with the drinking anymore."

These are only a few of possible events that can result in a crisis.

If you think you are in need of crisis intervention please stop by the Counseling Center (S-343) as soon as possible.

Confidentiality Guidelines Will Be Followed.
