PCC staff are ready and willing to support you, whether you reside on campus, live in the village of New Paltz, commute to campus, or take classes remotely.
We are here to listen, support, and respond to you using sensitive, mindful, and productive interventions that respect diversity in race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexuality, religion, and ability.
PCC counseling services are provided for registered SUNY New Paltz students in person or by video tele-counseling. Call the PCC office or walk in during business hours to schedule an initial appointment, or to access same-day crisis support services.
In the event of a mental health emergency after hours or on the weekend, call the same office line, 845-257-2920, and follow the prompts to reach our answering service, who will then contact a PCC counselor to return your call ASAP. Be sure to state your name and phone number clearly, and ensure that your phone can receive calls from an unknown/blocked number.

We look forward to partnering with you, and supporting you in your academic pursuits, personal development, and wellness journey, whether you are a first-year, transfer, returning, or graduate student. Best wishes for a healthy and safe semester!
