Our psychiatry staff offers outpatient evaluation and treatment for problems such as depression, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, and attention deficit disorder.
Students may be referred to psychiatry by one of our clinicians. Others may self-refer by scheduling an initial triage appointment . Students are requested to arrive for their appointments 15-20 minutes early to check in and fill out appropriate paperwork. A $25 service fee is charged for each psychiatry appointment.
Treatment includes medication management and limited psychotherapy with out-patient follow-up. Many students receive medical treatment from our psychiatry staff while also receiving counseling services from our psychologists.
Psychiatry Clients who wish also to participate in counseling:
Short term counseling is also available for students who are utilizing psychiatry services at the counseling center. The best way to access these services is simply to talk with your psychiatrist. Your psychiatrist can best assess your needs and help you arrange counseling.
