Athletic Health Enhancement

The Athletic Counseling Office operates during the academic year as a satellite clinic of CCPH located on-site in UMass Athletics to provide intercollegiate athletes ready access to the full range of college mental health services. By embedding a CCPH clinician in the Athletic Department who specializes in working with NCAA student-athletes, CCPH is better able to meet the unique developmental & behavioral health-related needs of this population. Athletic Counseling provides evidence-based, assessment-driven clinical mental health, prevention and health promotion services, emphasizing student-athlete engagement and healthy young adult decision-making. Our programming and services address emotional wellness, substance use, eating behavior, sexuality, diversity, interpersonal violence, prosocial behavior, healthy relationships, injury rehabilitation, human development, sports nutrition and other health-related concerns.
