Finding A Mental Health Provider

VU VUMC

Finding the right provider is important when beginning the therapeutic process. Work/Life Connections-EAP at 615-936-1327, is available for a confidential meeting with a faculty/staff member of Vanderbilt to assess the presenting problem, identify related issues and consider important demographic considerations (location, insurance, etc.) to assist in matching you with a potential provider. A counselor will suggest three or more potential providers who may meet your needs. The counselor may also talk with you about the process of selecting a provider with whom your are comfortable.

If you wish to initiate a search on your own, you can call the Vanderbilt insurance provider to obtain a list of providers at 1-800-743-0910.

You can also visit the Vanderbilt University Medical Center Human Resources website if you are a Medical Center employee, visit the Vanderbilt University Human Resources website if you are an employee of the university, or visit the insurance company’s website to locate providers:
