Psychiatric Services

Students in need of psychiatric services, such as evaluation, prescribing and monitoring of psychiatric medication, may obtain these services at the Mental Health Service in the University Health Center. Therapists in the Counseling Center collaborate with psychiatrists in the MHS when treatment planning indicates a need for both psychological and psychiatric support.

Off-campus psychiatric referrals also are available from the Counseling Center’s care manager.
