What happens when I speak with a mental health provider?

During an initial phone appointment, a Mental Health clinician will assess your concerns, identify and address your immediate needs, review a care and safety plan and discuss options for further assessment and treatment. These options may include:

  • Scheduling a follow-up visit with a UHCS clinician for further support and assessment
  • Scheduling a medication assessment visit
  • Referral to ongoing treatment in the local community
  • Referral to a student support group at UHCS
  • Referral to ICare, an internet-based and mobile-supported self-guided cognitive behavioral intervention.
  • Other helpful campus resources and supports
  • Resources and self-care steps you may take to help manage your condition

Call UHCS during business hours if you have a concern that you feel should not wait for an appointment. In case of emergency, call Northeastern University Police Department emergency line at (617) 373-3333 or 911. Find more information on after hours care here.
