Students need to make their own appointments.
Parents, friends, faculty, RAs and RDs who are concerned about a student may call for a consultation, encouraging the student to make an appointment, and even accompany them on the first appointment.
All contacts at the counseling center are confidential including the initial phone call.
In case a mental health emergency occurs when the Counseling Center is not available call the 24-hour Crisis Line at Bassett Hospital. The phone number is: 1-877-369-6699 This number is for emergencies only. If you are thinking about suicide, hurting yourself or hurting someone else it an emergency.
If someone has already done something, cut them selves or taken pills, or you think they may have taken some action, that is an emergency. Call University Police at x3550 and tell them about the situation.
We are always happy to answer your questions about counseling or mental health issues. Email your questions to Melissa Fallon, Ph.D.
If you have an urgent question or an emergency, please call the Counseling Center immediately at 607-436-3368 or read more about emergency situations.
Use the map above for driving directions to Oneonta and for a map of the campus. Once you reach Oneonta, take exit 15 from I-88.
Turn north at the end of the ramp onto Lettis Highway: left from the West/Binghamton, right from the East/Albany. (If you’re coming from Binghamton you’ll go through the couple quick lights there at the underpass.)
Cross Main Street at its first major intersection where Lettis Highway becomes Maple Street. At the first light on Maple Street, make a left onto Center Street. At the end of Center Street, make a right onto West Street. Turn right at the SUNY Oneonta sign onto Ravine Parkway and into the campus.
Proceed up the hill in Ravine Parkway straight past the initial signs welcoming you to campus, and then look to your left for the first campus building, around the building, which is the Counseling, Health, and Wellness Building. As you come in you’ll be in the Health Center’s lobby and as you approach the glass windows, take a left -- as you start down that hallway, the first door on your left is room 101/102, the Counseling Center waiting area.
