If you want to be evaluated for medication for a mental health concern, please try the following:
- Call the customer service number on the back of your insurance card and ask the representative to send you a list of in-network psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners.
- Make an appointment with a primary care physician at the Student Health Center to discuss medication options. If needed, the physician will refer you to a psychiatrist.
- Select the Psychiatrists tab on the search database Psychology Today. You can filter by zip code/state and insurance. The Counseling Center does not endorse any specific providers.
If a student is engaged in counseling at the Counseling Center, the clinician may refer a student to a Student Health Center physician or psychiatrist for a medication evaluation
