OBHS is located at 327 High Street (Davison Health Center). Call 685-2910 to schedule an appointment. Any Wesleyan student is entitled to use our services and all students are WELCOME! You don’t need to be “falling apart” to make an appointment. If you have an issue you’d like to discuss with a therapist, one of our staff will be available and interested in working with you. OBHS practices a time-limited model of psychotherapy-this schedule seems to match the pace of student’s lives. Our experience shows that a significant number of students find that five sessions are adequate for resolution of their issues while others need more time. When optimal treatment frequency is greater than what OBHS can provide or if the student wishes to see someone off-campus, a private therapist should be considered and we encourage the student to discuss with OBHS what would be most helpful.
OBHS appointments are scheduled for mornings or afternoons and we make every effort to offer an appointment to fit the student’s schedule-usually within a week. If you have an urgent situation and indicate that it is urgent, an OBHS therapist will talk with you within a few hours at the most. If you need to reschedule, postpone or cancel your appointment, give us as much advance notice as you can. This helps other students (who may want an appointment) and allows OBHS to better serve you. In case of an emergency after hours or on weekends, an OBHS therapist is always on call when the University is in session and can be reached by calling 685-2910 (listen carefully to the phone prompts that access the on-call therapist).
