  • The CAMHS Cares line 617-495-2042 is a 24/7 support line available to Harvard students who have mental health concerns, whether you are in immediate distress or not, on-campus or elsewhere. At all times, including evenings, weekends, and holidays, students can follow the prompts to speak directly with a CAMHS Cares Counselor about an urgent concern or if you just need to talk to someone about a difficult challenge or mental health issue.
  • On business days, same-day CAMHS urgent care appointments are available by calling CAMHS at 617-495-2042, press one, and request an urgent care appointment. CAMHS urgent care appointments are available in-person at our Smith Campus Center location in the CAMHS offices on the fourth floor of HUHS during business hours (8am to 6pm Monday through Thursday and 8am to 5pm Friday). Telemedicine options may also be available.
  • In a life-threatening emergency call HUPD at 617-495-1212 or 911.
