The medical school has services in place to support your physical, spiritual and emotional well-being, as well as many programs to help you academically and socially. Our goal is to ease your journey through medical school so your experience will be as comfortable and fulfilling as possible. If we can’t help you ourselves, we will refer you to the individual or office that can.
You may consult with Mental Health & Counseling about problems related to mood, coping, relationships, stress, anxiety, etc. You may go directly to Yale Health or call to make an appointment.

SHARE, the Sexual Harassment and Assault Response and Education Center, is a primary Yale resource. The SHARE Center is located on the Lower Level of Yale Health and students can walk in 9-5:00 weekdays. They can also call SHARE to schedule a daytime appointment. Trained counselors are also available after hours, holidays and weekends via their direct hotline, to speak with students, their supporters, or other community members with questions or concerns. These conversations are kept completely confidential; callers do not even need to give their names. Along with providing support, SHARE Counselors have crucial information about medical, legal, and disciplinary options, and help callers make their own decisions about how to proceed. For Yale students who do choose to take legal or disciplinary action, SHARE Counselors can facilitate those processes and serve as advocates. SHARE works closely with the Yale Police Department as well as the various disciplinary boards SHARE: Information, Advocacy, and Support. 24-hour confidential/anonymous hotline (203) 432-2000
