The department of Student Health and Counseling promotes students' optimal health, well-being, and development through the provision of high quality, integrated, and holistic health services. Staffed by caring professionals, Student Health and Counseling offers primary health care, psychological counseling, sexual health services, and health promotion services to SUNY Geneseo students, as well as consultation, prevention, and training programs to the Geneseo community. We strive to advance the missions of the College and Division of Student and Campus Life through empowering students to be active partners in their health care, providing education and resources to foster healthy decision making, and supporting students in the pursuit of their academic goals.
What This Means To You
When you visit Student Health and Counseling, you will receive excellent health care from professionals who understand the specific needs of college students. In our unified department, you can manage physical health needs, talk with a therapist, discuss contraception options, get information about healthy habits, and more. Because we take a holistic approach to health, our professional staff works with you to make sure that we address ways in which your physical health, your emotional health, and your whole-person identities might intersect. We understand how important health and wellbeing is to student success, and we we believe that students themselves play a major role in learning about and practicing behaviors that will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout their time at Geneseo and beyond.
