MIT Medical’s Mental Health and Counseling Service serves the entire Institute community. We work with students, faculty, and staff in the MIT community to identify, understand, and solve problems, and to help transform that understanding into positive action.
We see nearly 15 percent of the student body each year, and about 35 percent of students in a given class by the time they graduate. We can provide:
- Evaluations and consultations
- Brief treatment (counseling/psychotherapy and medication)
- Referrals to non-MIT Medical clinicians
- Urgent care
- Group counseling
- Advice when you are worried about a friend, colleague, or student
- Help for departments, labs, and centers that are dealing with traumatic events, sudden losses, or other troubling situations
