How Do I Get Started?

CMHS offers a variety of psychological services to assist you in managing the many demands and developmental challenges of college. Getting started with CMHS begins with a phone call.

Triage & Brief Assessment (Routine)

  • If you are new to CMHS, please call during our regular center hours of 8:30a.m. to 4:30p.m. to schedule a brief assessment. During this time we will triage your concerns, provide you with both on-campus and off-campus referrals as appropriate, and in the case of emergencies, connect you with immediate crisis services.

Triage & Brief Assessment (Emergency)

  • CMHS provides same day services for crisis and emergency situations. If you are in crisis or have an emergency please contact us during our usual hours of M-F from 8:30a.m. – 4:30p.m or walk in.
  • We can arrange for you to meet with our daily on-call therapist to discuss the nature of your concerns, provide helpful interventions, and discuss options and recommendations that meet your clinical care requirements.
  • If you are in need of emergency service at other times, please see our website for more information as to how to Access Emergency Services. If you are in a serious and life threatening emergency, please bypass this information and call 911 immediately for the UConn Police.
