We provide support to students experiencing a range of life's difficulties.

Welcome to Psychiatric Services

Psychiatrists are medical doctors specializing in mental health. The focus of our service is to help you to achieve psychological well-being and academic success. We provide a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential space in which to pursue your mental health treatment with a member of our team of psychiatrists.

Please note that our services are referral-based, so you must have a referral from a family doctor, physician, or McGill psychologist to book an appointment, except in emergency cases. 

To book an appointment, you can reach us by phone at 514-398-6019, by psychiatricservices [at] (email,) or stop by our office in Brown Building Suite 5500 West (in the west wing, through the Dr. Penfield entrance). 


Please note: To access services, you must be currently enrolled and paying the Student Services fee. The fee is automatically charged to the student account of undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows every fall and winter term. Certain other categories of students may opt to pay a fee to use the services.
