Who We Serve
The Psychological Services Clinic offers non-emergency mental health services, including psychotherapy and psychological assessments, to UConn students, adults, teens, children, and families in eastern Connecticut.
The Psychological Services Clinic does not offer 24/7 crisis services. If you need help right away, please call 911, visit your local emergency room, or call the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline at 988.
There are a variety of mental health resources available in the greater Storrs community.
Student Health and Wellness Mental Health Services (Arjona Building, 4th floor, 337 Mansfield Road) are open to current UConn students at the Storrs campus during business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). They provide drop-in services, including crisis intervention, and short-term treatment. They also provide 24/7 phone support (860-486-4705) during the fall and spring semesters. During summer and winter breaks, phone support is available during business hours.
Services are also available through Perception Program Behavioral Health Center and from a variety of community professionals near campus, including Maple Ridge Clinical Associates.
The Clinic provides short-term and medium-length psychotherapy to children, teens, adults, couples, and families. We use a wide variety of clinical practices and can tailor treatment to meet your needs. These sessions are by appointment only.
We charge for all services on a sliding fee scale. Your first treatment sessions are free, while the fee for later sessions will be negotiated during your first meeting.

We treat adults, including UConn students, experiencing a variety of concerns, including relationship and stress-related problems, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and more. Adults can be seen by themselves or with a partner in marital or couples' therapy.
Children and Teens
We treat children and teens for behavioral and emotional difficulties, attentional problems, oppositional behaviors, anxiety, depression, trauma-related difficulties, autism spectrum disorder, and more. Children and teens can be seen individually or in family sessions. Very young children may also be seen in parent-child sessions. While treatment is tailored to fit the needs of each individual or family, it is expected that all families will be involved in the treatment program.
The Clinic provides psychological evaluations for children and adults, including UConn students. Clients come to the Clinic for the assessment of learning disabilities, developmental disabilities, autism spectrum disorders, attentional difficulties, and emotional/ behavioral problems. Upon request clinicians may consult with schools and other agencies regarding evaluation results and treatment recommendations. The Clinic also works closely with the UConn Center for Students with Disabilities and with the Student Athlete Success Program to provide assessment to clients they refer.
The fee for full evaluations, including testing, test scoring, report preparation, and a feedback meeting, is $1,500. However, your fee can be reduced based on your family income. If you’re applying for a fee reduction, you’ll be given a Good Faith Estimate during the initial phone call, but fees are only confirmed after you present proof of income. For more information, see the Application for Reduced Fees.
