Referral Directory

Referral Directory

While you may still view our existing referral directory on this page, we have temporarily suspended updating our directory and are instead collaborating with partners in Boone County to provide a continuously updated list of providers accepting referrals during COVID-19 at https://bocomoproviders.org. To add your information to this list, please contact us at youthmentalhealth@missouri.edu for instructions on how to do so. Thank you!

Our referral directory provides information about therapists and mental health providers in Columbia, Boone County, and Central Missouri. The referral directory initiative is supported with funds from the Center for Evidence-Based Youth Mental Health, MU Psychological Services Clinic, MU Department of Psychological Sciences, and Boone County Children's Services Fund. All practice information including training, specialties, and certifications are provider-reported. The Center for Evidence-Based Youth Mental Health does not verify or endorse these trainings, specialties, and certifications.
