Referral Assistance is available to students who want to seek services in the community or whose needs are better addressed by off-campus mental health providers. This includes when a student wishes to pursue ongoing open-ended treatment or when they need more frequent or more specialized services than Mental Health Services can provide.

In partnership with Thriving Campus, Mental Health Services offers an online database of local mental health providers: Thriving Campus is a search engine of mental health providers and is a resource offered to the JHU community. Thriving Campus partners with colleges and universities across the nation to provide a comprehensive list of applicable providers.

Any student interested in referrals can utilize the Thriving Campus database on their own. Students and trainees seeking additional assistance with referrals can either talk to their current counselor, or request to speak with one of our mental health case managers by calling Mental Health Services.
