We all experience stress. An important part of the college experience is learning how to manage your health and well-being and effectively advocate for your health-related needs. From time to time, you may face a challenging situation that requires help
from others. Seeking support from the network of university resources is a sign of strength, one firmly supported by The New School's faculty and staff.
The New School is committed to providing a safe and inclusive educational environment that supports students' health and well-being. In keeping with this commitment, the university will not tolerate abusive or intimidating behavior by and toward members
of the university community. If you or someone you know has experienced an incident of violence or if you are wondering whether something you experienced was abusive, you can discuss your questions and concerns with Student Support and Advocacy staff. Speaking with the staff can be your first step in reporting an incident.
If you would like to speak confidentially with a member of the university staff trained in crisis response, contact Student Health Services.
Helping and Referring a Friend
Watching friends go through distressing experiences is difficult, especially when they are struggling with issues that seem beyond your ability to help. Fortunately, there are a number of resources at The New School to guide students facing such challenges.
One of the best ways to help a friend during a difficult time is to familiarize yourself with these resources and encourage the friend to reach out to the appropriate office.
