How to Get Started

Clinic Services

The BYU Comprehensive Clinic offers specialized training for advanced graduate students in Marriage and Family Therapy, Social Work, and Clinical Psychology. All services are provided by supervised graduate-level students. To ensure high-quality training, sessions are securely recorded.

As a community mental health clinic, we offer services on a sliding fee scale ranging from $0-$30 a session depending on financial need. BYU students are not charged for therapy services.

Couple and relational therapy cases get the first three sessions free!

Please note, we do not provide crisis or after-hours services and may refer certain cases to other community resources. Clients with severe or chronic psychiatric conditions, actively suicidal tendencies, abusive situations, substance misuse, court-ordered therapy, or ongoing legal issues may be referred elsewhere.

Thank you for understanding our focus on training and providing the best care possible.

After reviewing the above details, please click this link to get started on a screening form. It will only take 5 minutes. Our staff will review your information and either assign you to a department or schedule a brief phone call to ask a few more questions (see below).
Couple, child, and relational cases will typically be assigned to a department within 2 business days. From there, a therapist is assigned your case and will call you to schedule an appointment. These various steps can take up to 5 business days, and will take longer if you need a phone interview.
Wait times for individual therapy fluctuate from 3 weeks to 6 months. For assessment services' wait times, please refer to this page. An assessment is not needed prior to starting therapy.

Intake Process

Please be aware that filling out the above form and being on our wait list (our "call list") does not guarantee immediate access to services. As openings become available, we may schedule a phone interview with you. We'll assess your therapy or assessment needs and gather relevant historical information. Some of these questions may include current symptoms, past experiences with therapy, current or previous diagnoses, history of suicidality or psychiatric hospitalization, substance use, etc.
If we're a good fit for your treatment, you'll be assigned to a department and a practicum supervisor. A student therapist will contact you to schedule a formal therapy or assessment session.
If we can't offer our services, we'll gladly provide contact information and resources for other community options. We look forward to joining you on your journey to wellness and hope to hear from you soon!
