For a formal consultation
If you have never been to CCPH, you can be scheduled for a 45 minute consultation with a licensed clinician by calling our main number Monday through Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm at (413) 545-2337.
First Appointments can also be booked directly through the patient portal if you meet the following criteria: current UMass student taking five or more credits, residing in Massachusetts, and not currently a client at CCPH. If you do not meet these criteria, please call (413) 545-2337 to speak with someone directly. Appointments are booked throughout the day and we have many same-day appointments available.
At the end of your consultation we will work with you to create a plan that best meets your needs. This may include registering for a group or workshop, a follow up appointment with the clinician you met with, referral for a medication consultation, or recommendations for other resources. In order to remain accessible to the greatest number of students, CCPH focuses on providing short-term and solution-focused therapy. If you need or want longer-term therapy, we can help connect you with a local provider. If it you require help urgently or need help outside of our normal office hours, CCPH offers phone crisis consultation.
