Students

Psychiatric Services

During this evaluation, student needs and concerns are discussed, diagnosis is made, and treatment plan is developed.  If medication is indicated, students usually meet with our psychiatrist on a biweekly basis until it is clear that the prescribed medication is effective. There is no additional cost for this service, although we do ask students to be sure to cancel appointments that they will not be able to keep.  There is a fee charged for missed appointments.
