Everyone needs a little help sometimes. At times we may need a gentle reminder that our mental health and emotional well-being are just as important as our physical health. This page includes a comprehensive list of campus and local resources available to support undergraduate, graduate, and professional Cornell students and resources for students with children/families, partners, or spouses. Highlighted resources are confidential. This page does not cover all of the resources available in the Ithaca area and should be used as a starting point when making referrals if you are unsure where to find help. Note: The information below is adapted from the Support for Students | Mental Health at Cornell website. 


If there is an immediate threat to life, health, property, or environment:

  • Call 911 from any phone on campus or use a Blue Light or other campus emergency phone. If you are using a cell phone, call 607-255-1111. Describe as clearly as possible the location and nature of the emergency.
