Feeling Overwhelmed?

Brookdale’s Mental Health & Wellness Counseling Services has professionally trained and NJ licensed counselors.

Adjusting to the demands of college and difficult personal issues can bring about added stress, and sometimes students need some help coping with it all.

We can refer you to resources at the college or in your community should you require outside services and support.

*Confidentiality can be broken if there is evidence of intent to harm one’s self or others. In this event, we will inform only those people whose assistance is needed to deal with the crisis.
