We provide comprehensive and confidential mental health services for all students enrolled in the schools located at the Anschutz Medical Campus (Medical, Dental, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, Physician Assistant, Physical Therapy, graduate school, etc.) as well as GME residents and fellows (including Denver Health (DH) residents and fellows). Initial appointments are scheduled relatively quickly, often within the same week. Options for ongoing care include receiving treatment from the AMC Student and Resident Mental Health clinicians, the UCH Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic, and a community network of providers, depending on insurance coverage.
