Off Campus Referrals for Students

Open door to desk with chair.

Below is a list of resources and tools that can help with searching for an off-campus provider.

Students may seek out or be referred to mental health providers off-campus for a variety of reasons. These may include wanting long-term therapy/treatment or seeking a particular specialization or approach. Students can schedule an initial consultation at CAMHS to help identify the most appropriate services and care for their specific needs (schedule on Patient Portal).

CAMHS Clinical Care Coordinator, Alyssa Mauriello, LICSW provides students with additional support in the referral process as needed. If you have questions about finding an off-campus therapist or would like further assistance with the process, please email Alyssa at or call (617) 495-2042. 

Insurance and Cost information

Students enrolled in SHIP can visit or call member services at (617) 495-2008 for questions about coverage. 
If you are enrolled in a different insurance plan, you will need to contact your insurance directly to learn more about your benefits and potential out-of-pocket costs. Below are some important questions to ask when calling:
  • Does my plan cover Behavioral Health services in Massachusetts (or wherever you are located)?
  • What is my co-pay for "In-Network" outpatient Behavioral Health visits?
  • Do I have a deductible, and if so, what is the deductible for "In-Network" outpatient Behavioral Health services? How much of the deductible has already been met and when does it reset?
  • Do I have any "Out-of-Network" benefits?
  • How can I find a list of "In-Network" providers in my area?
