The UCC provides outpatient psychiatric services to eligible Notre Dame students who are receiving counseling at the UCC. Referrals for a psychiatric evaluation and treatment may be made following a student’s drop-in appointment or at any point during individual treatment. All referrals for psychiatric evaluations are made as a joint decision between UCC staff and the student.
The UCC psychiatric providers serve in a consulting role and do not serve as the only provider for any student seeking services at the UCC. Therefore, if a student is only interested in medication management and does not wish to engage in individual or group counseling at the UCC, they will be referred to University Health Services or to an off campus provider for their psychiatric care.
