Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH) is an interdisciplinary counseling service available to enrolled UMass students. We provide short term individual, couple’s and group psychotherapy; psychiatric medication consultation and treatment; psychological assessment (testing); behavioral medicine; and crisis intervention services. We are staffed by licensed mental health providers, including social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists and clinical nurse specialists. We are open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and are also available 24 hours a day to provide crisis intervention services and assessment.
Take care of yourself during this time and know that support is available. If you need to leave campus to better support your family, notify your professors and the Dean of Student’s Office. The Dean’s office also has a Microgrant Fund to potentially assist with travel costs. If you remain on campus, communicate with your faculty if your coursework is impeded. If you are experiencing distress, utilize CCPH resources or call 413-545-2337 to speak with one of our staff.
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.
