Getting Started

Register for a free workshop

The first time you visit the Center for Counseling and Psychological Health (CCPH), you may be walking into one of our free workshops. Workshops are skills-based and open to all UMass students; they focus on various topics, including stress management, self-esteem, relationships, emotional wellness, social anxiety, and ADHD.

Initial call

If you are looking for a consultation with (CCPH), you can call (413) 545-2337 for a same day first appointment. To schedule a same day first appointment, call our office after 8:30a.m. Appointments are booked throughout the day until filled.

At the end of the same day appointment, we'll discuss what to do next. Options might include a referral to a workshop or group, follow up appointments at CCPH, and/or referrals to other  campus or community resources. If your situation is critical, CCPH also offers in-person and phone crisis consultation.

CCPH provides short-term psychotherapy services. If you need or want longer-term therapy, CCPH can help connect you to providers in our community.

For those seeking a medication consultation with a psychiatric provider, CCPH asks that you go through the same triage or same day first appointment process, and at the end of that appointment, your clinician will help refer you to a CCPH psychiatric provider.
