We can help.

The Baruch College Counseling Center would like to remind members of the Baruch community that help and support are available for those impacted by the recent earthquake in Nepal. If you or your family has suffered loss, or if awareness of the suffering in Nepal has had an emotional effect on you or someone you know, we are here to help. We encourage you to stop by our office located at 137 East 25th Street on the 9th floor, or call us at 646-312-2155, or email us at

While our thoughts are with the people of Nepal, we are focused on the well-being of our College community. We recognize that people will experience a wide range of emotions, behavior and reactions to tragic events such as this. We can provide you with the tools you need to cope with feelings of anxiety, depression, hopelessness, anger or frustration. You can alleviate some of your pain by volunteering or donating to relief efforts, talking to friends and family, or seeking professional counseling services. It is normal to want to regain control after a traumatic event, but you must also take the time to heal.

Please contact us if we could be of service.
