“Stepped Mental Health Care" at George Mason University, Center for Psychological Services, provides mental health care for individuals through 4 “steps” that each use evidence-based approaches for treating various presenting concerns (e.g., stress, anxiety, depression, substance use, and other mental illnesses). At each level of care, properly trained and supervised mental health trainees deliver services that are provided either free (steps 1 and 2) or on an income-based sliding scale (steps 3 and 4).
Telephone helpline access 7 days/week from 8:30am-8:30pm, using an evidence-informed approach to address acute issues, with screening for problems that require more intensive treatment.
3-session telehealth intervention, using an evidence-informed approach to addressing mental health problems, with continued screening for problems that require more intensive treatment.
Referral for full services (via telehealth or in-person) through expanded services at the Center for Psychological Services.
Step 3 + medication management, if indicated (via telehealth or in-person) at the Center for Psychological Services and Mason’s Population Health Center.
