If you are interested in counseling, the first step will be an initial consultation with a clinician to talk about your concerns and interest. We help students identify and access the most appropriate services for particular situations, which may include follow up sessions here at the counseling office. All enrolled UMass Boston students, regardless of insurance, are eligible for the following services at no charge, and we will assess these options further in the consultation: 

  • A consultation, by appointment, to determine treatment needs and options 
  • Brief and focused individual therapy 
  • Emergency/crisis intervention 
  • Assistance with referrals for accessing care off-campus 
  • Assistance with medical documentation and referrals to on-campus supports 
  • Outreach events, groups and workshops
  • Medication evaluations 
  • Educational materials 

Whether or not you are a current patient at the center, we have options for same day crisis support (by walking in day time, or calling our 24/7 crisis phone support at 855.634.4135)
