Student Health and Counseling

Health Services

 

Welcome to Student Health and Counseling!

Student Health and Counseling (SHAC) is a safe, confidential place where students can receive comprehensive medical treatment, speak with professional clinicians regarding personal issues in both individual and group sessions and receive nutrition counseling. SHAC is staffed by licensed medical and mental health practitioners and a registered dietitian. We have many resources to help you be successful in College. Please do not hesitate to stop by with any questions or concerns. Your wellness is our priority!

Effective immediately Student Health and Counseling services are a telehealth model of care 

All in-person appointments will remain suspended until the start of Fall semester (or until the campus reopens).  SHAC is using a secure platform for telehealth.   See below for detailed information related to scheduling an appointment and accessing support services and resources.  Please note that you will be asked to sign a telehealth consent form prior to participating in a telehealth appointment.  If you have any questions concerning SHAC services, please do not hesitate to reach out and ask us, email shac@mville.edu or call (914) 323-7277.

Health 

For health-related issues, please call (914) 323-5245 and schedule a virtual appointment.  If you do not need an appointment but would like to request a prescription refill, you should also call (914) 323-5245 or email shac@mville.edu and a health services staff person will get in contact with you. 

Counseling and Nutrition Counseling  

For counseling or nutrition counseling, you can reach our office at (914) 323-5155 and schedule an appointment.  If you are a current client, you can reach out to your counselor or nutritionist, or email shac@mville.edu.  There are some limitations regarding providing counseling across state lines (state dependent), nonetheless, please contact us and we will work to find a suitable solution.  If you reside in a state where telecounseling is not permitted, we will assist you with finding services or resources in your area. 

Psychiatry  

Psychiatry appointments will remain limited; students who are current patients of Dr. Saqi will be able to receive refills.  Messages to her will be delivered by our office manager.  If Dr. Saqi believes she should speak with the student, she will reach out via phone or video session.  If you require a prescription refill, please call us and we will work to take care of that for you.  Please be aware that if you have not met with Dr. Saqi over the past few months, it is possible you will need to be referred to a provider in the community.
