Cornell is a Caring Community

Everybody needs help and support sometimes, especially during times of transition and stress.

Cornell is a caring community where you'll find people and organizations that can help you work through problems big and small, and support you in cultivating your emotional health and well-being.

Learning how and when to seek assistance is an important part of staying healthy and of doing and feeling your best at Cornell.
