What resources are available for students for counseling and mental health?
We understand that COVID-19 has brought on many new stresses for students. We want to make sure students are aware of the ongoing mental health support and wellness activities to help during these times.
Boston Campus students in all programs can continue to access counseling services now available remotely through Talk One2One. The phone number to access this service is 1-800-756-3124. This is both a 24-hour emergency helpline as well as a way to access the mental health counselors assigned to the Boston campus for ongoing counseling.
The University Chaplaincy continues to be available to all members of the Tufts community for emotional and spiritual support, to talk about grief and loss, or generally to be a listening ear. Please email email@example.com to be connected with a chaplain by phone, Zoom, or WebEx.
Student Wellness Programs remain in full swing during the summer. Please see the weekly Wellness Newsletter or contact our campus wellness advisor, Sharon Snaggs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-636-2700.
Students who were in care with a counseling and/or psychiatric provider at Counseling and Mental Health: You and your current clinician should be in touch by phone or through the Medicat Secure Health Portal to arrange a call or video chat to discuss how to proceed.
Initiating Counseling: CMHS is not able to initiate care with students remotely. Students who are not in the local area who are seeking to initiate counseling can access telemental health care through iHope or BetterHelp, or through area resources near their locations. If you are having trouble securing care and would like assistance with the process, you may call CMHScat 617-627-3360 and tell the front desk you are seeking remote referral help.
