SUNY Sullivan Student Health Services Mission Statement

The mission of SUNY Sullivan’s Student’s Health Services Office is to support each student’s academic success by promoting optimal health and well-being from the moment each student begins their academic journey. This mission complements the mission of SUNY Sullivan County Community College by providing health education and support services to our students. We provide basic medical care, treatment, and health education with the intent to encourage, inspire, and empower the student towards a sustainable lifestyle of health and well-being.

Student Health Services Offered


The Department of Learning and Student Development provides short term personal counseling services for all current students. Issues discussed in counseling may include adjustment to being away from home or college life, difficulties with motivation or decision-making, relationship difficulties, stress and anxiety, uncertainty about future careers or coping with illness or death of a loved one. All services offered are free of charge and within the guidelines of confidentiality. Referrals to community agencies will be made when requested or deemed necessary.

Counselors also provide psycho-educational programming for the student body. Some of the workshops that are offered throughout the semesters include: Communication, Sleep Deprivation, Healthy Relationships, Stress Management, Anger Management, Coping Skills for Depression and Drug and Alcohol Abuse. Suggestions are always welcome for additional workshops to meet students’ needs.
