Faculty and Staff Mental Health

The mission of the Faculty and Staff Mental Health Clinic is to provide CU Anschutz faculty and staff with comprehensive and confidential mental health services that are readily and easily accessible. This dedicated clinic for faculty and staff improves access to mental health care by providing a convenient entry point of care.


Eligibility for service

While the Faculty and Staff Mental Health Clinic is currently only available to faculty and staff employed at CU Anschutz, we are working with our hospital partners to create an entry point of mental health care for hospital staff members. At this time, however, staff at our hospital partners can access mental health services in the following ways:


Insurance coverage

We accept most insurance including the CU Anschutz sponsored Anthem plans. Please contact the clinic to determine coverage by calling 303-724-4987 or by emailing fsmh@ucdenver.edu. Unfortunately, at this time, we cannot accept insurance from the CU Anschutz sponsored Kaiser Permanente plan. Those with Kaiser Permanente can access mental health services by calling 303-471-7700. 


Scheduling an appointment

Appointments can be made by calling 303-724-4987 or by emailing fsmh@ucdenver.edu. During the COVID-19 pandemic, all appointments will be virtual.
