Welcome to CCPH

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.

"Let's Talk"

As part of temporary CCPH service changes, all "Let's Talk" and "Let's Chat" sessions will be held by phone. Call CCPH at 413-545-2337 during "Let's Talk" hours to speak to a clinician. 

When something’s bothering you, talking about it is often the first step toward a solution. “Let’s Talk” is a convenient, confidential way to get insight and information without starting formal mental health treatment. It’s a chance to briefly share what’s on your mind, find support, and get recommendations.
