Medications often can be helpful to students struggling with depression, anxiety and other emotional concerns.
We have a strong commitment to helping students understand their difficulties and to offering a range of options. Our psychiatric clinicians (psychiatrists and nurse practitioners) can meet with students to determine which medications might be helpful and to recommend a course of treatment. Students interested in an evaluation for psychiatric medication need first to meet with a counselor in either Counseling & Psychological Services or Social Services. Counselors will help a student evaluate the range of available treatment options and arrange for a psychiatric assessment when deemed appropriate. UHS medical clinicians can also refer students for a psychiatric evaluation when appropriate.
