The Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH) offers a community of care to UMass Amherst students to help them cope with stress or anxiety, find strategies to overcome challenges, promote mental wellbeing, and succeed in college life and beyond. CCPH services include: workshops and consultations; crisis intervention; brief (generally 3-5 sessions) individual, couples, and group therapy; behavioral medicine; medication management; psychological assessment; suicide prevention training; campus consultation and education; and community referrals. We are open 8:30am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday and are also available 24 hours/day for mental health emergencies.
The UMass nondiscrimination policy includes “gender identity and expression.” We provide access to facilities and respect students’ pronouns and names consistent with gender identity.
The university’s commitment reflects related anti-discrimination protections to transgender people in the state of Massachusetts.
