Welcome to the Behavioral Health Service

College is an exciting time of opportunities and self discovery, however, there are times when students may struggle with depression, anxiety and other mental health illnesses that require medical attention.

The Behavioral Health Service provides confidential services for registered UMD students including medication evaluation and management, crisis intervention, and psychotherapy.  We can also consult with the broader UMD campus community as needed.

Our team is staffed with licensed clinicians, including psychiatrists, psychiatric nurse practitioners, and psychotherapists who are available to assist with a variety of mental health conditions. 

The Behavioral Health Service is located on the second floor of the Health Center.If you are experiencing a psychiatric emergency call 911 or go to your nearest hospital emergency department.

Current patients may contact their therapist or prescriber by leaving a secure message at or calling (301) 314-8106 for refills or other concerns.
