Caring for Your Mental Health at Aspire

Updated on February 24th, 2023

As you prepare for your arrival, we recognize that while exciting, you will experience new and maybe ongoing stressors during your time here that may impact your mental health.

  • If you already have a mental health team at home, we recommend working with current providers on a plan to attend to your mental health while away from home: planning for medication, checking if telehealth is an option, identifying what support persons can be available to you in a crisis, identifying local emergency rooms in the event of a crisis, etc.
  • In the event of a mental health crisis, Summer Programs Staff might refer Aspire students to Berklee's Counseling Services for urgent support.

Students in crisis or who have a mental health emergency should call Public Safety at 617-747-8888 to be connected to the oncall team for further support. They may also call 988 (The National Suicide and Crisis Lifeline), 911 or go to a local emergency room for assistance.
