Health and Wellness
Wellness/AccessABILITY Services offers a variety of mental health and wellness-based services and coordinate reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities.
The Wellness/AccessABILITY Clinician currently provides short-term, personal counseling services to assist you with problem solving, adjustment issues and other matters of personal concern that may interfere with your academic success at Guttman Community College at CUNY. At this time we offer 30-45 minute sessions by appointment. All counseling services are confidential and take place in Room 506. Contact Melanie Downs, Wellness/AccessABILITY Clinican, at 646-313-8162 or email@example.com to schedule an initial appointment.
Wellness/AccessABILITY Services also works with students whose disabilities may require some type of accommodation, including exam accommodations. Students with disabilities are encouraged to meet with the Wellness/AccessABILITY Clinican as early as possible to ensure adequate arrangements and support can be arranged.
It is the student’s responsibility to initiate a request for accommodation, even if the student has previously identified herself/himself as a person with a disability. Appropriate accommodations will be made on an individual basis. All applications concerning disability accommodations will be regarded as confidential and will only be disclosed when there is a specific need to know this information (e.g., to a proctor of an examination for which special accommodations have been approved).
Wellness/AccessABILITY Services comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, which protect persons from discrimination on the basis of physical or mental impairments.
