Referrals to Mental Health Providers

Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services offers psychiatry and brief therapy to students over the course of the academic year.* Some students may find short-term therapy to be adequate while others may benefit from longer-term or more specialized support. In these cases, Monsour may recommend locating a local provider in the Claremont or surrounding area.

Students interested in assistance with locating a therapist off-campus may request a meeting with the case manager at CMC ( or fill out the referral request form at Monsour. Staff can work with students on identifying potential therapists in the surrounding area that may meet a range of criteria set forth by the student (ie. insurance, location, expertise in presenting symptoms, preferences around gender, race and ethnicity). There are many local resources and treatment providers in the Claremont area. Please note, it is the responsibility of the student, and not Claremont McKenna College, to evaluate any treatment provider to support the student’s success.

In addition to the options above, CMC has a limited number of sessions available with contracted therapists who are located in the Heggblade Annex, in between Heggblade and McKenna Auditorium. For questions or to schedule an appointment, please contact

*Students are encouraged to schedule therapy and/or psychiatry appointments as soon as possible at the beginning of the semester, as appointments tend to fill up quickly.
