If you are a new student or have not been seen at CAMHS in 12 months, you can make an appointment for an initial phone consult through the patient portal.
It's best to schedule a consultation as soon as possible if you are considering counseling services; as the semester progresses the amount of wait time for an Initial Consultation may increase. Remember, if you need support very quickly, urgent care is always available.
Sign on to the patient portal and find a CAMHS provider time slot that works with your schedule. If you want to speak with a specific clinician, you can schedule with them based on availability. Once you have chosen an initial consult date and time, please fill out the online questionnaire. This gives the clinician more information about your needs so they can prepare for the conversation.
Phone consultations are offered every day throughout the week during office hours. If you have difficulty finding a time that fits your schedule, please call the office at (617) 495-2042.
Please be ready for your appointment call. These appointments are brief, so you want to utilize the time you have. If you miss the call you will need to reschedule on the HUHS portal. (Clinicians will usually try your phone number a few times in the first 5 minutes.)
