Yale Health

Mental Health & Counseling

For students only

The Mental Health & Counseling Department is committed to caring for the psychological concerns of undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students.

Care is provided by mental health professionals including:

  • psychiatrists

  • clinical psychologists

  • clinical social workers

What happens when I call for an appointment?

  • An appointment will be made for an initial assessment within a few days of contacting the department or the same day in an urgent situation.

  • This first appointment is an opportunity for you to discuss your immediate concerns and for the clinician to understand you as an individual. You will leave with their contact information to use, if you have a need, prior to your next appointment.

  • After this 60-minute assessment the Clinical Director reviews your needs and determines the best treatment option for your issues and matches you with the most appropriate clinician. Your new clinician will contact you by phone to schedule your first session.

  • There is an option to begin group therapy prior to starting individual treatment.

Note: Clinically urgent situations are handled in an appropriate time frame.

Treatment options include:

  •  counseling

  •  group therapy (some have a particular focus such as eating concerns or bereavement, while others cover a range of issues)

  • couples counseling

  • alcohol and drug counseling, sex counseling

  • and medication when appropriate.
