Summer Hours for CCMH

CCMH remains open for all services during the summer. Our summer hours are 9am-4pm, Monday-Friday (except when the college is closed for a holiday.) Our 24-7 crisis support remains available with no disruption in service. Feel free to contact CCMH at our main line with any questions you may have. 

Online Scheduling Now Available!

The Amherst Center for Counseling and Mental Health is proud to offer online scheduling for two types of appointments: initial assessment appointments, and single session appointments. You can log into our portal by going to our forms page and view upcoming appointment times. Please do not use this function if you already receive care at the center. This function is not to schedule routine visits with your providers.

ALL ENROLLED STUDENTS are eligible to receive counseling and psychiatry services from the Center for Counseling and Mental Health, including brief individual therapy, single-session counseling, groups, medication management, and urgent care. 

Three Ways to Make an Appointment

  1. Call our front office at 413-542-2354 between 8:30am-4:30pm EST
  2. 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. This option is only available during the fall and spring semesters. To make an appointment during breaks, please call or email the center.
  3. Email

Crisis and urgent care appointments are available same-day, and a first-time appointment for ongoing counseling can be scheduled within a week. 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.
