Some students express interest in meeting with a psychiatrist for medication consultation. The counseling center works with a psychiatrist who is available to see students one afternoon per week. Students interested in medication must first meet with one of our therapists for an initial discussion about medication. The therapist will discuss the option of medication with the student, and together they will decide whether it makes sense to pursue this avenue of treatment. An appointment with the psychiatrist is then scheduled. All students who are prescribed medication through the counseling center are required to meet with the psychiatrist monthly as well as with a staff therapist at least every 3-4 weeks. Students are responsible for the cost of medication, and typically either pay out of pocket or utilize insurance.
