TALK (to a mental health professional)

  • Let's Talk drop-in consultation with a UHS counselor. Informal, brief, free, and do not require any insurance or paperwork.

  • Social Services - Services are topic-specific and aim to help students strengthen coping skills, problem solve, and identify resources. Social Services is open to all registered UC Berkeley students regardless of insurance plan.

  • Career Counseling - Students interested in Career Assessment Consultations, Career Library Resource Tours, or TAO Coaching Sessions can use this link to access all of these appointments, or they can email careerlibrary@berkeley.edu to get started.

  • Individual Counseling:

    • with a UHS counselor

    • with a counselor from humanest (students also have the option to access humanest, one of our partners to access free counseling appointments).

  • UHS Psychiatry -- Students interested in an evaluation for psychiatric medication need first to meet with a counselor in either Counseling & Psychological Services or Social Services.

  • For students with SHIP, Teladoc is another option for ongoing therapy and psychiatry services (medication management for mild-moderate depression and anxiety) through online video sessions. 

  • The ProtoCall behavioral health services after-hours support line is available 24/7/365 (855-817-5667)

Therapists in the community can see students more frequently and longer-term. If a student is seeking medication evaluation/management, they might also consider a community psychiatrist
