Services the Wellness Center Does Not Provide
The Wellness Center typically addressed the following issues through referral:
- Medication management
Severe substance abuse/treatment
The Wellness Center will provide a list of off campus resources in the surrounding area for issues that are outside our scope of expertise.
Our staff includes professional licensed clinicians that are highly skilled and passionate about working with college students. We also have skilled masters level graduate clinical counseling interns supervised by our professional staff. For students needing care beyond the scope and credentials of our clinicians or who are currently taking prescription medication for mental health needs, it is important to plan for continuation of services with a local counselor or therapist. We highly recommend that you consult with your current provider to discuss continuation of medication and ongoing therapy.
The Wellness Center Staff can assist in referrals to mental health specialists in the local community.
