Behavioral Medicine (Mental Health)
Our Behavioral Medicine staff, psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical nurse specialists, licensed mental health clinicians, and licensed clinical social workers, are available to address the many psychological and adjustment issues that arise in a university community. When longer-term care is needed, we will facilitate referral to expert clinicians in the local community. Appointments or urgent care are available by calling 617-353-3569. Behavioral Medicine clinicians are available 24 hours a day on-call for urgent situations.
Faculty and staff may contact Behavioral Medicine at 617-353-3569 if they are concerned about a student. There is a specific clinician affiliated with each college and available, in addition to the rest of Behavioral Medicine, to speak with staff about students of concern. Also click on Help Info.
