COUNSELING CENTER >
Counseling Center staff members are available to provide consultation for faculty and staff regarding issues or concerns about a student. Consultations are available in person or by telephone.
Individual and/or group counseling sessions are available to full-time students free of charge. Counseling may focus on concerns such as separation issues, relationships, anxiety, depression, abuse, grief/loss, eating disorders, etc. We utilize a brief therapy model of counseling in order to accommodate the entire student body. This means that therapy sessions will focus on the issues/concerns at hand. If long term or more intensive therapy is required, the student may be referred to an off campus therapist.
Psychiatric Medication Management
Psychiatric services include psychiatric evaluations and ongoing pharmacotherapy or medication management. Psychiatric services are available only to students who are engaged in individual counseling services at the RMU Counseling Center. After undergoing a triage assessment and engaging in individual counseling, a student may be referred for psychiatric services by his/her individual counselor.
To continue receiving pharmacotherapy services or medication management, a student must remain engaged in individual counseling services. If long-term medication management is required or if a student client wishes to receive psychiatric services only, he/she will be assisted with referrals to psychiatric providers off-campus.
