Medication With Off-Campus Mental Health Services

CMHS provides no actual endorsement of these practitioners who have submitted information to CMHS declaring their interest in being on a CMHS referral list for UConn students. Because mental health treatment is an ongoing commitment, it is important that you find care provider with whom you feel comfortable. Good care providers don’t just prescribe medication; they listen to your concerns, help you overcome difficulties, and make treatment a collaborative process.
