Ongoing Programs and Resources

Let’s Talk
Let’s Talk is a program that provides easy access to informal, confidential conversations with clinicians from CAMHS. Clinicians hold walk-in hours at designated sites around campus. There is no appointment necessary and no fee for the service.

Counseling and Mental Health Services
A no-cost support service that works collaboratively across the University to support registered students who are experiencing some measure of distress in their lives. You can request an initial consult, online, by going through your HUHS patient portal. If you have questions, you can call the CAMHS front desk at 617-495-2042.

CAMHS Workshops and Groups
Participation in one of CAMHS’s many groups or workshops provides a safe and supportive place to discuss your concerns and learn coping skills with others who may have similar challenges. Workshops are voluntary and available for you to join. Group counseling requires a referral from your CAMHS clinician and gives you the opportunity to meet other students and share problems, concerns, issues, and goals. Groups are facilitated by a therapist, have six to eight members, require a pre-group screening with one of the leaders, and vary in frequency. Group counseling can help you change and reach personal goals, and can also alleviate feelings of alienation and loneliness.

Drop-in Counseling with Marla Allisan, JD, LICSW
Fridays from 11:00 am-12:00 pm and 1:00 pm-2:00 pm, Pound Hall Clinic

If you have concerns, but don’t know if you need therapy, feel free to try Drop-In Counseling, for a 30-minute session. This is for HLS students only. Urgent Care is still available at Smith Center, 3rd floor, 24/7 and is the appropriate choice for urgent matters.

Grieving Together
10/29, 11/5, 11/12, 11/19 (Tuesday evenings) from 5:15 pm-6:30pm, Pound Hall Clinic
This is a group for students who are grieving a loss such as the death of a parent/relative, friend, colleague or similar type of loss. This may be a recent loss or an old loss that is affecting you at this time.
Co-led by Marla Allisan, JD, LICSW and Tammy McLeod, MA, Harvard Chaplain
