Making an Appointment is Easy!
There are several ways to schedule an appointment with a professional mental health clinician at Counseling and Psychological Services:
- Call Counseling and Psychological Services at 6825149225 and ask to make an “intake appointment.” The receptionist will assist you in finding the first available appointment that fits your schedule. Normal business hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- After hours, you may speak to an on-call therapist 24 hours by phone by calling 951-827-5531. Should you need to schedule a follow-up appointment, you will need to call or walk into Counseling and Psychological Services during normal business hours.
- Appointments may be cancelled 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment time. Appointments may be cancelled by phone by calling 951-827-5531 or using the secure portal https://chconline.ucr.edu.
- Appointments cancelled less than 24 hours in advance, or missed/no-showed appointments will be counted as one of your allotted sessions and will be charged a missed appointment fee (see Missed/Late Cancelled Appointment Policy)
In order to allow time to fill out the required demographic questionnaire, we ask that you arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled intake time. Forms take about 30 minutes to complete. Forms must be completed before you speak with a clinician. If you do not allow adequate time to complete the forms, the time you have to speak with the clinician may be reduced or you may need to re-schedule your appointment.
