Consulting Psychiatrist

Our consulting psychiatrist is available to provide medication evaluations and prescribing when appropriate. The psychiatrist may also take over the prescribing of medications which students have been prescribed by other doctors. Students must see a counselor before they see the psychiatrist in order to obtain history and medication information. The psychiatrist is avaiilable during limited hours at the Counseling Center. There is a usual and customary fee for the psychiatrist. Scholarship money is available for students who can not afford to see the psychiatrist. Please ask your counselor about the scholarship funds. No student will be turned away for lack of funds. During COVID, all medication appointments are over video link.  Prior to their medication appointments, students must obtain their current vital signs from the staff at Boettcher Health Center.

The Counseling Center also has a psychiatric Nurse Practitioner who provides medication management for students.  The Nurse Practitioner can prescribe and renew medications.

Documentation from the home prescribing physician is requested prior to seeing the psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner for continued medication management. Medical record must be requested by the student and they can sign a release of information form to be sent to their home doctor. This information may be confidentially faxed to the Counseling Center at 719-389-6064.
