Graduate Students


Welcome to Mental Health Services (MHS) at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL). Whether you are a new graduate or professional student or have been at WUSTL for a while, we want to welcome you and let you know that we are here to support your academic and personal success. If you are experiencing a situational problem, a crisis or have long-standing mental health concerns, we are here to help. Our professional staff includes licensed psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, and professional counselors.

MHS understands that being a graduate/professional student presents a unique set of challenges. Often during graduate school, students report reduced access to social supports, increased concerns about finances, difficulties balancing child care, stress in marriages or committed relationships, tension in relationships with advisors, and isolation with research work. In addition, international students may find living in a new culture stressful.

MHS is here to support your transition to WUSTL as well as your development and growth. Our services are confidential. Please browse through this section of the MHS website to learn about the many services available to WUSTL graduate and professional students. If you would like to schedule an initial consultation or speak to a counselor, please set up a telephone assessment through the online SHS portal​.
