The Counseling Center has a psychiatrist on site part-time (16-20 hours/week) who can prescribe medications when appropriate. This service is provided for students actively engaged in ongoing counseling at the Counseling Center.
If you and your Counseling Center counselor together believe medication may be an effective option, your counselor will make a referral and an appointment with the psychiatrist. The Counseling Center psychiatrist will evaluate your situation and determine if medication is appropriate.
Alternatively, the Counseling Center referral coordinator may help you get connected to services in the community, utilizing your insurance provider, when appropriate.
