ALL ENROLLED STUDENTS are eligible to receive counseling and psychiatry services from the Counseling Center, including brief individual therapy, single-session counseling, groups, medication management, and urgent care. Students can also use My SSP, a free resource provided by Amherst College that provides mental health counseling through chat, phone, and video.
Three Ways to Make an Appointment
- Call our front office at 413-542-2354 between 8:30am-4:30pm EST
- Self-schedule initial assessment appointments and single session appointments (not for students already connected to the center). You can do this in our appointment forms portal by clicking here.
- Email email@example.com
Crisis and urgent care appointments are available same-day, and a first-time appointment for ongoing counseling can be scheduled within 1-2 weeks. After hours, you can leave a message for our office and we will get back to you the following business day. For all appointments, some online forms must be completed—you'll receive instructions for your online forms prior to your appointment. Please be sure to complete these forms before your appointment time. Learn more about our services.
