  • 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. Telemedicine options may also be available.
  • In a life-threatening emergency call HUPD at 617-495-1212 or 911.
