Counseling and Mental Health Services (CAMHS) offers a wonderful array of virtual programs for students to promote mental wellbeing this semester.
Learn about eligibility
Participation in one of our many online groups or workshops provides a confidential, safe and supportive space to discuss your concerns and learn coping skills with others who may have similar challenges. Any of these programs can help you change and reach personal goals, foster stress management skills, and alleviate feelings of alienation and loneliness. The number of sessions vary in frequency depending on group format.
NOTE: CAMHS workshops and groups are open to Harvard undergraduate and graduate students who have registered for the HUHS Student Health Fee, which is required for the majority of students. If you have a question about eligibility, please call Patient Registration at 617-495-5795.
What’s the difference in group formats?
Psychoeducational workshops are skills-based, typically 4-8 sessions, and are voluntary to join. Most are drop-in as needed but you will get the most benefit by attending the series..
Support groups require a communication with the group facilitator to ensure the right fit (for example, the Recovery or Queer support groups).
Therapy groups require a referral from your CAMHS clinician and a clinical pre-screening with the group facilitator. Therapy groups typically have 6-8 members (for example, Graduate Students Support Group).
Harvard students who have mental health concerns, whether they are in immediate distress or not, on-campus or elsewhere, can call the CAMHS Cares 24/7 support line at (617) 495 2042.
