Middle Earth Café: A Virtual Hotline

The Café is a service of the Middle Earth Peer Assistance Program and provides information about mental health and behavioral issues that affect college students.

It is an online alternative to the Middle Earth telephone hotline (518-442-5777).

College students may face issues such as relationship issues, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, discrimination, or suicidal thoughts that can interfere with academic performance. We encourage you to write to us if you are a student who is stressed or have personal questions and concerns about yourself or someone else.
