SUNY Plattsburgh prioritizing student’s mental health
PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) - SUNY Plattsburgh received two new federal grants to expand student mental health services.
$400,000 dollars will go toward covering the cost of an evening mental health counselor, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, and a student assistance program.
Adding one new counselor creates availability for 30 to 40 news students to be seen. While that doesn’t seem like a lot, the current waitlist for a counselor is two weeks.
Grants will also fund mental health training for university police and self-care programming.
