The Counseling Center grieves the violent deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and David McAtee, who represent the latest of many who have lost their lives in a relentless series of violence toward Black individuals and communities.

Counseling Services During COVID-19:
In addition to the below information, the Counseling Center is offering these workshops and group discussions while classes are held remotely.
The Counseling Center recognizes the impact that the COVID-19 public health crisis is having on our campus community and we remain committed to supporting students emotional growth and wellbeing. We are available to provide services to currently enrolled Dartmouth students who would otherwise be eligible to receive care through Dartmouth's Health Service, in all 50 states and US territories. We are able to provide consultations for our students internationally and assist them in finding ongoing resources if they are needed.
Counseling Center services include: triage appointments, short-term therapy, medication management, crisis services, nutrition appointments, groups, anxiety workshops, consultations and community referrals.
To protect the welfare of both students and our staff, there has been a shift in the way we provide services during this unprecedented event. We have transitioned from in-person contact to teletherapy (phone or HIPAA approved Zoom). To schedule an appointment, or ask questions about our services, please call the Counseling Center at 603-646-9442. Our phone lines are staffed Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. (EST).
IMPORTANT: Crisis services are available to all actively enrolled students 24/7. The on-call counselor can be accessed Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. by calling the Counseling Center, 603-646-9442. After hours, the on-call counselor can be accessed by calling the Inpatient Nursing Department (IPD), 603-646-9440.
