Resources & Referrals
Counseling Center Referral Service
The Counseling Center has a Referral Specialist on staff who assists students in learning about community resources for counseling and other services (e.g. housing, food, health care). A student may schedule an appointment with the Referral Specialist for this purpose.
Some students may benefit from more frequent, longer-term, or specialized care than what is available at the Counseling Center. In these cases, a student will meet with the Referral Specialist to explore available resources and options. The Referral Specialist may assist students in making initial contact with an outside provider or agency and can provide follow up support.
Medication Service Referrals
If a student seeks Counseling Center services through a consultation appointment or is engaged in counseling at the Counseling Center, the clinicians may refer a student to the Student Health Center physician or psychiatrists for a medication evaluation.
If a student wishes to be referred to a Student Health Center psychiatrist only and is not seeking counseling services, the student should schedule an appointment with a physician or Nurse Practitioner at the Student Health Center and they will determine eligibility for an appointment with a psychiatrist.
A student may schedule an appointment with the Referral Specialist at the Counseling Center if the student would like assistance in finding a psychiatrist in the community.
