Mental Health Services

The Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Mental Health Services provides mental health and personal counseling services to all IU School of Medicine students, residents and fellows on every IU School of Medicine Campus.

In addition to mental health services, our team provides a menu of diverse outreach and programming options. We provide services that respect and celebrate all aspects of diversity, including but not limited to: ethnic and racial identity, sexual orientation, sexual and gender identity, physical and mental ability, age, national origin, religious identity, socioeconomic status, political ideology, military status, and cultural heritage/values.

COVID-19 Update

In response to the continuing COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, the Department of Mental Health Services has shifted to telehealth (via Zoom Health) for all initial and follow up appointments.

Appointments (via Zoom) are available during typical business hours. Email will be monitored as usual and calls will go to a voicemail box checked regularly throughout the business day. We will reply to emails and calls within one business day. If you have an appointment, you will receive a Zoom invitation that includes a link to log into your appointment and instructions for downloading the Zoom app to either your phone or computer.

If you have an urgent matter, IU School of Medicine learners can contact the 24-hour IU School of Medicine crisis line at 317-278-HELP (4357) to reach a licensed mental health clinician.
