CUNY Offers New Text-Based Mental Health Services

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–In a newsletter released Feb. 22, CUNY announced their intention to implement a new form of text-based counseling for students. This new initiative is provided in partnership with the Crisis Text Line, a 24/7 organization dedicated to online mental health and counseling.

   “The Crisis Text Line is just the first of many ways we are strengthening the mental health services we provide to CUNY students at a time when many are facing psychological burdens that can impede their academic success,” said Chancellor Félix V. Matos Rodríguez in the newsletter.
