Community Therapist Options

The Counseling Center can help connect you with an off-campus provider, regardless of your insurance plan. 

Sometimes seeking therapy or medication services off campus is your best option to address a particular concern or meet your individual needs. If the Counseling Center has recommended off-campus services or you are looking into them on your own, the information on this page can help.

Recommended ways to connect with an off-campus provider:

  1. Contact the Counseling Center for support with referrals
    We continue to offer help with off-campus counseling referrals which we know can be a process.  At any time if you need help with referrals, you are welcome to request assistance from a Counseling Center provider by calling 603-646-9442.
  2. Register for Uwill teletherapy services
    All students with an active Dartmouth email address are eligible for free, unlimited teletherapy services through Uwill. Find more information here.
  3. Through your insurance
    You may also locate in-network providers of your choice by calling the customer service number on the back of your health insurance card or by checking your health insurance carrier's website for a provider search feature. Students with the Dartmouth Student Group Health plan can search here.   
  4. Psychology Today
    Psychology Today is a search tool that can assist in locating behavioral health providers. 
    *Connecting with a provider listed on Psychology Today may require use of your insurance. To assess out-of-pocket expenses, we recommend verifying with your insurance company if a provider is in or out-of-network with your insurance plan.

Reasons to see off-campus mental health providers:

  • Off campus, you may be able to see a therapist on evenings or weekends
  • Off campus, you typically have more flexibility to see a therapist for as long as you need or want. This is particularly beneficial when you have longstanding, complex, or more severe issues—you may find that you can make more progress on such issues when you are able to continue in therapy for longer than is usually possible on campus. Furthermore, some students just prefer open-ended rather than brief therapy.
  • Off campus, certain services are available that are not available on campus, such as intensive outpatient and inpatient treatment for mental illness, eating disorders, and substance use disorders and comprehensive psychological or educational testing.
  • You may prefer seeing an off-campus therapist for other reasons, such as when you live off campus.
