Student Mental Health & Wellness Program

About the Program

The Student Mental Health & Wellness Program plays an important role in supporting the mental health of students across our MD, MD-PhD, and Physician Associate programs. Students in the Physician Assistant (PA) Online Program participate in wellness programming.

(PA Online students can participate in counseling, subject to state licensing rules. See our FAQ page for more information.)

The program provides short-term mental health consultation and intervention to address mild-to-moderate severity symptoms (e.g., depressed mood or anxiety) or acute adjustment issues (e.g., role stress, grief, relationship changes). These sessions can be virtual or in-person.

If longer-term mental health concerns and need for treatment is identified, we will facilitate the transition to Yale Health Mental Health & Counseling or Magellan through Mental Health & Counseling, and our staff will support you in getting connected to those ongoing services.

In addition to the mental health services provided by our social worker and psychologist, our wellness counselor will work with students to address needs related to time and stress management, well-being, and self-care. Our staff also will facilitate groups and wellness seminars around topics of interest to YSM students.
