Psychiatry

Update on psychiatry services 

The Carruth Center's physical office is closed until further notice. Services are available through telehealth and other online methods. You can still reach us at 304-293-4431 if you have questions or are interested in scheduling services. You can also contact us via email for general information or questions. Information about our response and care model for COVID-19 is updated frequently.

Psychiatry services overview

Our psychiatry staff offer consultation as well as outpatient treatment and management for a wide range of emotional health and wellbeing concerns including depression, anxiety, mania, psychosis, and attention related concerns

Students can be referred to meet with one of our psychiatrists by our counseling center staff or Student Health Service. If you wish to schedule an initial triage appointment with one of our counselors to discuss possible referral for psychiatric services, contact us to make an appointment. Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment in order to complete the intake forms

A $25 fee is charged for each psychiatry appointment. An online payment portal is available for credit card payments.

We do not schedule future psychiatry appointments beyond 4 weeks from the time the appointment is requested. In the event there are no new appointment openings within a 4 week period, our counselors will encourage other mental health resources available at the Carruth Center, at WVU or in the greater Morgantown community.

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.

Other important resources

The wait for a new evaluation by a psychiatrist at the Carruth Center may exceed six weeks. The wait for an appointment tends to increase as the semester progresses. All students who wish to continue their care or establish psychiatric care with the Carruth Center are encouraged to call early in the semester to set up an appointment.

All WVU students are encouraged to consider other resources including the counseling servicesgroups, the Student Assistance Program, and our testing services.

Other psychiatric services in the Morgantown area
