Confidential counseling services are available to all enrolled Pratt students. Licensed mental health professionals including psychologists and clinical social workers provide all services. Pratt also uses a psychiatrist to provide further evaluation for psychotropic medications when needed.

Pratt Institute’s Resilience, Wellness and Well-Being Project is dedicated to creating a culture where the entire Pratt community can flourish and thrive. Together, students will gain the creative and life skills that build meaning and engagement during their time at Pratt and after graduation. We are Pratt for life! We are a campus of thriving students, relentlessly curious, civically engaged, academically and socially supported, and accountable to our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. All of which is inspired by our Institute Strategic Plan.

This project focuses on connection, engagement, support, and well-being. It highlights departmental programs and the cross institute leadership that provides the inspiration and support for existing and new initiatives, and serves as a resource for everyone seeking to improve individual and community resilience, wellness and well-being.

The curricular and co-curricular integration of these ideals are explored through an Institute wide Resilience, Wellness and Well-Being Council, Resilience and Positivity Certificate and Well-being workshop modules. The Institute offers Contemplative Practices For Credit, and self-guided learning resources both live and online, social media gatherings, and drop-in communities. The division of Student Affairs provides programs and activities that are centered on the whole student in Residential Life and Housing, Student Involvement, Athletics and Recreation, Center for Career & Professional Development, Health Promotion, Learning Access Center, the Counseling Center, and Health Services.

There are many touch points and ways to enhance and develop resilience, wellness and well-being across the Institute. And we are here to be a resource and provide a road map for these touch points along the way.
