Counseling Center

Supporting students' mental and emotional health

We're Here To Help

The Counseling Center is available for all students who are struggling and seeking mental health support. Through the use of secure and confidential telehealth software, Counseling Center staff will connect with students online to assess and determine the best course of action to help them. If appropriate, staff can schedule follow up appointments in order to provide brief mental health support. Should it be determined that in-person or more local support is necessary, we will assist with connecting students with those resources.   

Finally, Counseling Center staff will continue to serve as consultants for students, staff, faculty and parents who are concerned about a student’s mental health and are seeking advice. Please call our main number to connect with one of our staff.

Updated Spring Semester Procedures

With students being asked to remain off campus, some procedures for speaking with the Counseling Center have changed. Please reference the FAQs below for current procedures: 

I am currently struggling with a mental health issue, is it still possible to get support from the Counseling Center at this time?
Yes. While the Counseling Center is not currently meeting with students in person, you will be able to make a teleservices appointment to speak with a provider on the phone or over confidential, secure video chat health software. Please call the front desk at (781) 891-2274 to schedule an appointment.

Is mental health support available outside of normal business hours?
Yes. We have after hours clinicians available outside of normal business hours.  Please call the Counseling Center main number (781) 891-2274 and follow the prompts to be connected.

I have an upcoming appointment at the Counseling Center that I made prior to spring break. Should I try to attend?
No. All future appointments with the Counseling Center have been canceled. Your provider will be in touch with you to assess your ongoing needs and make recommendations. Feel free to reach out to the Counseling Center should you need to speak with someone prior to being contacted.

I am in need of regular mental health support. Will the Counseling Center be able to help me?
Unfortunately, given the circumstances, the Counseling Center is unable to meet with students for ongoing mental health support at this time. We recommend that you find a provider who is located close to where you are living. If you would like help with this process, please call the Counseling Center at (781) 891-2274 and ask to make a teleservices appointment. You can also find an outside provider that takes your insurance and is local to you using the following link: https://bentley.thrivingcampus.com/.

I am experiencing a mental health emergency, what should I do?
If you are in crisis and need support right away, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room.
