Counseling and Mental Health

CMHS: 617-627-3360 

End-of-Semester Care at CMHS

In order to provide rapid access to services during the busy end-of-year period, Tufts Counseling and Mental Health Service (CMHS) will be temporarily offering same-day, 45-minute appointments to all students initiating counseling on both the Medford/Somerville and SMFA campuses. These same-day meetings are designed to be one-time, goal-oriented counseling sessions that address a specific concern. Students may schedule an additional same-day appointment during this time if needed. This change will be in effect from April 16   until May 17, 2019, allowing a greater number of students access to our clinical team during a period of high demand.

To schedule:

  • Call CMHS (617-627-3360) between 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. on the day you wish to come in. (The earlier you call, the more likely it will be for you to arrange your preferred appointment time.)
  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to complete forms that will assist the clinician helping you.
  • If possible, come with a specific goal in mind.

Please note that this temporary change in service does not affect students’ ability to reach the Counselor-on-Call in the event of an emergency after hours or on the weekend. Students may still call Public Safety at 617-627-3030 at these times to be connected to the Counselor-on-Call.

If you have any questions, please call CHMS at 617-627-3360 during office hours (9 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday through Friday).

We are a diverse team of clinicians deeply committed to helping students navigate challenges related to mental health and well-being. We offer a range of free and confidential services to all undergraduates and to graduate students who have paid the Health Fee.
