The Psychopharm Clinic provides psychiatric consultation and medication evaluation and monitoring for clients at the TELL Counseling Center.
From time to time, an individual may be in need of consultation by a psychiatrist for the purpose of clarifying treatment or determining whether it is advisable to prescribe medication to treat the mental health issue. An example might be referring to the Psychopharm Clinic to determine whether medication might also be helpful in the treatment of anxiety or depression in addition to professional face-to-face counseling.
