Psychiatric Services

If a counselor determines that a psychiatric evaluation is warranted, the counselor may refer the student to a CAPS psychiatric provider (Psychiatrist or Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner). The psychiatric provider typically meets with students for a 45-50 minute evaluation appointment to determine the most appropriate treatment. Students who begin a medication regimen can continue to meet with the psychiatric provider periodically for follow-up appointments until the student graduates or is referred to a community provider (this is determined by the provider). Some medications prescribed can be filled from the Student Wellness pharmacy at reduced rates for students.
