In general, students utilize individual counseling for support around a variety of needs including but not limited to anxiety, depression, adjustment, identity exploration, time/stress management, and relationship concerns.  In the event you are experiencing an emergency, please contact Campus Police at 508-565-5555 if on-campus or 911 if off-campus.

If you feel you are in crisis or in need of urgent support and would like to speak with a clinician, please call 508-565-1331 and select Option 2 to be connected to the 24/7 Urgent Support Line.  

Appointment Scheduling

Appointment scheduling is done by phone.  Please call 508-565-1331 and select Option 1 for routine appointment scheduling.  

Individual counseling is available on a short-term, goal-oriented basis, and after the intake period, is typically bi-weekly.  Students are offered the next available routine appointment and are randomly assigned a clinician.  If a student has a preference for a particular clinician, a longer wait for the next available slot could be possible.  Confidentiality is assured in line with professional ethical standards.  There are no additional costs for this service on-campus.  

Under some circumstances, the student's needs may extend beyond support available through Counseling Services and a referral to other on or off-campus resources would be made, at which point the student's health insurance may be utilized.  Counseling Services maintains a list of area referral agencies for students who wish to pursue counseling and support needs off-campus.

Our consulting psychiatric nurse practitioner is available during the academic year for medication consultation. Students interested in medication consultation with the psychiatric nurse practitioner must also meet regularly with a clinician within Counseling Services, and should have a full intake with a counselor prior to scheduling a meeting with the psychiatric nurse practitioner.  For any students interested in ongoing support at Counseling Services who have had prior treatment, a release of information will be sought to communicate with previous providers to promote continuity of care.  For students who plan to meet with the psychiatric nurse practitioner, a release of information will be sought for consultation with the student's primary care doctor also.  

For Further Information

For more in-depth understanding of the counseling process, our services, the scope of support available on-campus, and when off-campus referral may be utilized, please see our General Information Handout that we present to students upon intake.
