Everyone who comes to Mental Health starts with an Access Consultation to collaboratively determine your needs and connect you to the best resources. There is no charge for these services.
Access Consultations are drop-in friendly and on a first-come, first-served basis. Come to the Mental Health Services reception desk any time between 9 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday. The earlier in the day the better. If there are students ahead of you and you are unable to wait, you can return later that day when you have more time.
You’ll be asked to complete some brief paperwork that takes approximately ten minutes and then you will meet with a counselor who will listen to your concerns and discuss what resources might be most appropriate, whether at UHS or elsewhere in the community. You should plan for about an hour to complete the Access Consultation from beginning to end.
An Access Consultation is the first stop for:
- Mental health counseling services
- Psychiatric services (including transfer of psychiatric prescriptions)
- Wellness services
- Care Management referrals
- Disordered eating assessments and treatment
