Individual Counseling and Psychotherapy
Many students are offered short-term psychological counseling after initial evaluation with a staff person. Students who require extended or specialized counseling may be referred to other mental health services in the area.
Students and others who desire psychological advice regarding concerns about others may make an appointment. At various times this option has been utilized by clubs, teams, groups of roommates or friends, as well as individuals.
Psychiatric medication may be prescribed as an adjunct to counseling and psychotherapy at UCS. Our psychiatrists conduct medication evaluations on referral from UCS counselors. Students seeking only psychiatric medications are assisted with referrals to psychiatrists in the community.
