At MIT Student Mental Health & Counseling Services, we pledge to use our collective voice to advocate for equity and justice across the Institute and in our wider communities.
Student Mental Health and Counseling Services is available for telehealth visits* and in-person appointments. We see nearly 21 percent of the student body each year, and about 29 percent of students in a given class by the time they graduate. We can provide:
- Evaluations and consultations
- Brief treatment (counseling/psychotherapy and medication)
- Off-campus counseling referrals and support
- Outreach, education, and prevention
- COVID-19 resources
- Urgent care
- Group counseling
- Support for eating concerns
- 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
- Psychology Training Programs
*Because some states have laws restricting the provision of telehealth services across state lines, MIT Medical’s telehealth services are available only to patients who are physically located in Massachusetts at the time of the appointment.
MIT Medical’s Student Mental Health & Counseling Services is fully accredited by the International Association of Counseling Services (IACS). IACS Accreditation is a voluntary, peer review, evaluative process involving a written self-study and the adherence to established standards of practice.
