‌The current students in Touro's Mental Health Counseling (MHC) program range in age, background, and lifestyle, but they all share a desire to become excellent mental health counselors. Our students have a commitment to community service and a passion for improving the lives of those around them. Take a few seconds to learn why Matthias chose MHC. 

‌‌Name: Matthias George

Hometown: Queens, NY

Why MHC? As a leader at my church—I’m the youth pastor—many at-risk teens come to me with their problems. I want to get the proper training to provide counsel for those who need it.

Internship placement: At a substance and alcohol abuse rehabilitation center.

Future goal: To work with young people going down a rough path in life, offering guidance counseling to help get them back on track.
