Graduate Students

Not sure you need the assistance of a professional therapist but would appreciate having the support of a confidential peer?

EARS is committed to serving the graduate student community with the assistance of trained counselors who are graduate students or professional staff at Cornell.


EARS graduate student counselors on shift at the following times:

  • Peer support by Graduate students for Graduate students :

    • Check back later for current hours


  • All sessions are in 213 Wilard Straight Hall, 2nd Floor (one floor down the Ivy Room).

Crisis Text Line complements EARS by offering late-night support and an easy way to reach out when you're home for the holidays: the line is open 24/7 and 365 days a year. As a crisis counselor, I use many of the skills I learned in EARS training and have found that some people feel more comfortable sharing through text first, before voicing aloud. Text START to 741-741.
