Mental Health Care in the Community

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. You can also make an appointment at the Counseling Center and we will assist you with finding a mental health provider in the community. 

You can also use help HelpPRO Therapist Finder, a national mental health service finder.

Sleep Disorders Evaluation and Treatment

The Sleep Disorders Center at Metro West Medical Center
The Sleep Disorders Center at MWMC provides comprehensive diagnosis of sleep disturbances. To assess symptoms that occur during sleep, we need to observe patients for a full night in the laboratory.

The Center has 2 locations:
4 sleep rooms at Leonard Morse Hospital in Natick and 4 sleep rooms at the Framingham Sheraton Hotel. The private rooms, experienced staff, and advanced equipment make testing simple and comfortable.
