I have had fine experiences with Yale Mental Health and Counseling. When I needed help, everyone I interacted with was perfectly competent. However, I know that my experience is not the norm. I have friends who have not come close to having their needs met within the framework promised by the university. To me, it’s clear there is an immense need for mental health care and the university has not devoted enough resources in mental health for YMHC to meet the needs of students. People fall through the fall cracks all of the time. If this is going to be a healthy community, the Yale administration should put its money where its mouth is.
