Counseling and Mental Health Services (CAMHS) is a counseling and mental health support service that seeks to work collaboratively with students and the University to support individuals who are experiencing any measure of distress in their lives. This may include bereavement, adjustment difficulties, depression, anxiety, stress, concerns interfering with work or relationships, sexual concerns, or high-risk behaviors around food, alcohol, or other substances.
Treatment options include individual counseling, medication management, group therapy, peer counseling, and workshops. All visits are confidential. Mental health records are held separately from the rest of the medical record, except for information on medications and hospitalizations. Counseling and mental health services are also offered at satellite health clinics on the Harvard Business School, Harvard Law School, and Longwood Medical Area campuses.
