Helping Our Students

Quick Guide to Connecting Students with Mental Health Services:

  • The Georgia Tech Center for Mental Health Care & Resources is here to offer confidential support and services to students in need of mental health care. 
  • During regular business hours, students who are not actively in counseling may call 404-894-2575 or walk-in to the office located on the second floor, Suite 238 in the Smithgall Student Services Building at 353 Ferst DR NW, Atlanta, GA 30313 (Flag Building next to the Student Center). 
  • Any time outside of business hours, students may call 404-894-2575 and select the option to speak to the after-hours counselor. Please note, the after-hours system is not set up for staff or faculty to call on behalf of a student so please encourage your student(s) to call directly or consider completing a referral to the Office of the Dean of Students.
