Health, Wellness & Safety
At Iona, you are never alone. We are always here for you.
Iona is committed to keeping you safe and well physically, mentally and emotionally.
We offer comprehensive services to address your physical, mental and emotional health, as well as your safety and security on campus.
The Iona Wellness Center is the place to go with any health issues. Our Health Services staff at the Wellness Center are licensed, board-certified practitioners, and provide individualized services including evaluation and treatment of acute illnesses and injuries, physical examinations, issues related to women’s and men’s health and wellness, screenings, and many other services.
Our Counseling Center offers free, confidential, emotional and psychological support. We know that college life can be stressful. Our skilled clinicians who are specially trained in college mental health can help with:
- Strategies for managing depression, stress, anger, anxiety, self-esteem and many other issues;
- Medication evaluation and management with a psychiatric nurse practitioner;
- Appointments with an Alcohol and Other Drug Coordinator who provides specialized consultation and referral services to anyone struggling with substance abuse; and
- Resources for members of the LGBTQ community, their allies, friends, and families.
Our Campus Safety team is a 24/7 operation, staffed with New York State licensed security officers who work to ensure that you will be living and learning in a safe environment. These officers maintain positive interactions with our community on a daily basis and perform regular monitoring of our campus.
With our Emergency Blue Alert Phones throughout campus – which put you in immediate communication with a campus security officer and dispatch an officer to your location – and our other extensive safety measures, you have the peace of mind of enjoying campus safely.
The Concerns and Response (CARE) Team provides information about student behavior, which may constitute a risk of danger to self or others, and responds appropriately to reports of such behavior.
