Psychiatric evaluations are conducted to supplement counseling and/or determine a need for psychotropic medications. Psychiatrists meet with students regularly to monitor and manage all prescribed medications.
Consulting Psychiatrist Services
It is the policy of the PCCC that any student who wishes to meet with the consulting psychiatrist must be a client in ongoing counseling at our center. Students may be referred any time by their PCCC therapist, after the appropriate background information has been gathered and clinical need has been established. Our consulting psychiatrist offers 10 clinic hours per week. The consulting psychiatrist may also refer students for services that are not part of the PCCC psychiatrist’s scope of care. More information regarding psychiatric services is available on request.
