If you would like to receive mental health care off-campus (either psychotherapy and/or medication evaluation/management), we recommend utilizing your insurance coverage to minimize cost. You can find a mental/behavioral health phone number or website listed on your insurance card, or you can access information through your health plan’s main web site.

The two closest agencies to FSU that take many health insurances are Advocates Outpatient Services (508-935-0769) and Framingham Psychiatric Counseling Associates (508-980-1462). These and other treatment providers are listed below.

You can make an appointment or call the Counseling Center to assist you with this process and for possible referral.
