The BHC does have one parking spot designated for patients of the BHC, by reservation only. Use of the BHC parking space is prioritized for individuals who require accessible parking. If you require accessible parking, please let your clinician know and they will reserve the parking spot for use during your appointment. Click here for directions to the BHC reserved parking space.

We are located on the main campus in the Psychology Building, Room 210. Our address is:

1503 E University Blvd.

If you are interested in individual, group, or couples/family therapy please complete our patient interest survey to get started. BHC staff follow-up with a brief phone call to review clinic policies and see if the BHC might be capable of meeting your needs. If it seems the BHC may be a good fit, they will assist you in scheduling an appointment.

If you are interested in making an appointment for assessment services, please ask your medical or mental health provider for a referral. You can ask your provider to complete our brief online referral form at https://redcap.link/uabhc-assessment. Once completed, BHC staff will review the referral and follow up with a brief phone call to review clinic policies and assist you in scheduling an appointment.

The BHC is primarily staffed by clinical psychology graduate students who only see a small number of patients for therapy or evaluations and assessments. The clinicians working in the BHC often operate with the academic schedule resulting in less availability to take on new patients during the summer months. Therefore, there are times when we cannot accommodate new patients for several months.

We do occasionally maintain a short wait list (a list of interested individuals who get notified when there is an opening with a clinician to see if they are still interested in our services). However, for ethical reasons, we try not to maintain a wait list of more individuals than we think we can accommodate within a 3-month period.

Please consult our patient interest survey for current availability. If we are not taking new patients or adding to our waitlist, you’ll be provided with resources to aid in finding services elsewhere. You’re also welcome to contact the clinic directly.

Since the BHC is a training clinic, we already offer our services at greatly reduced prices. However, we recognize that cost can remain a barrier to obtaining care. Individuals who cannot afford our base rates are encouraged to inquire about our financial assistance policy. The BHC offers a sliding-scale discounted rate for assessment services based upon total gross family income and if the individual has any dependents. Please contact us for additional details.

No. None of the providers at the BHC prescribe medication. However, we will be happy to work in conjunction with your medical treatment team or psychiatric medication provider. 

No. As trainees, none of the BHC providers are not contracted by insurance plans, which means the BHC does not take insurance and is not able to bill to insurance.

We accept check, debit cards, and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, & Discover) as forms of payment. We do not accept cash as a form of payment. We do not accept insurance.

If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please provide 24-hour’s notice prior to your scheduled appointment time. You will be charged the full-service fee for missed or cancelled appointments without 24-hour advance notice.
