Schedule an appointment

The Department of Mental Health Services (DMHS) offers both in-person and tele-health visits. DMHS clinicians currently maintain hybrid (in-person and remote work) schedules. In-person visits are available on days clinicians are in the office, and tele-health appointments are available daily during typical business hours. Tele-health visits are conducted through our portal, with zoom links available within the portal. You may schedule visits through the portal, or call our front desk at 317-278-2383.

Patients must be located in Indiana for all therapy and medication management appointments.

  • If you live out-of-state and commute to campus, please be aware of this requirement and ensure you are within state lines during your tele-health appointment.
  • If you live in-state, but will be traveling out-of-state for rotations, conferences or other school-related training, you will need to reschedule your appointment for after your return. There may be a few exceptions to this requirement depending on the provider and your location. Please talk with your provider to learn more.

If you have concerns about how to meet these in-state requirements, please discuss your concerns with your provider or the front desk prior to your appointment.

Calls may go to a voicemail box, which will be checked regularly throughout the business day. We will reply to emails and calls within one business day.
