Resources for Students
- The Student Wellness Assistance Program provides access to Web-based services and one-on-one 24/7 telephone counseling. It is available free of charge to all Empire State College students.
- Talk One-2-One is a resource for confidential, convenient, 24/7 support. Read more about it on our website.
Start by calling 800-756-3124 and talking to one of our counselors on the phone. Many times problems can be resolved within that phone call. Sometimes things are a little more complicated, and you may want to meet with someone in person to talk through your issue more in depth. In that case, we would find you an in-network counselor close to your center, home or work so you could talk to someone face-to-face.
Resources for Faculty and Staff
- Contact the human resources office (518-587-2100, ext. 2240) if you need assistance with determining your health and mental health benefits.
