Counseling and Mental Health Service

Counseling and Mental Health Service (CMHS) is Tufts’ counseling service for students. Our team of mental health professionals is here to help you feel mentally and emotionally well. All services except Psychiatric Services are free for undergraduate and graduate students who have paid the Health and Wellness Fee.

Share Your Feedback

Did you meet with a CMHS clinician this semester? We're interested in your feedback and invite you to complete this student satisfaction survey. If you completed this survey earlier in the semester and have new feedback to provide, you may fill it out again. All respondents can enter to win a $25 Amazon gift card; completing the survey multiple times each semester will not increase your odds of winning. The winner will be announced at the end of each semester.
