Psychological Services Center The Ohio State University

How do I schedule an appointment?

Please call us at 614-292-2059 to speak to the clinic coordinator, who will gather information and answer some of your questions. Usually, our receptionist is available on Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 5:00. The administrative staff is not available evenings or weekends. After hours or when someone is not available you may leave a confidential message on the PSC voicemail. We will make every attempt to return your call within the next business day. We apologize for not being able to answer specific diagnostic questions by phone or email.

Following your initial contact with our receptionist we will make every attempt to contact you within two weeks to complete a screening interview by phone. During this brief, twenty minute phone interview our staff will ask you some questions about your current concerns. Following that interview the Clinic Director will review your information to determine which clinic might be a good match for you.

Please use the link to each Specialty Clinic that is located on the PSC home page for information regarding the treatment that each clinic provides.

How much does it cost? Does the PSC require insurance?

All of the services offered at the PSC are offered free of any charge and are available to all adults in the Columbus area. We do not participate in any insurance panels and we never charge for any of our services. This program is supported in full by The Ohio State University to support the training of future psychologists and as a service to the community.

How long does it take to get an appointment?

This depends on clinician availability and the length of our wait list. Unfortunately, the wait list is often quite lengthy. It is difficult for us to estimate the wait period, as it fluctuates depending on client characteristics and our changing training needs. It could be two weeks or two months, so we encourage all potential clients to seek treatment at other facilities as well.
