The Student Health Clinic provides services related to psychiatric medication evaluation and management of medications including comprehensive evaluations and pharmacotherapy under the direction of a psychiatrist and psychiatric nurse practitioner. A liaison exists with the University of Northern Iowa’s Counseling Center for additional mental health/behavioral health services.
Our Philosophy of Care
- Treatment is client-centered, focusing on individual needs and concerns in the context of our clients' lives outside the treatment setting
- Treatment recommendations are strength-based, using the available client and community resources rather than focused on deficits of pathology
- Treatment includes multiple modalities as needed such as psychotherapy, crisis management, medications, environmental support, and mobilization of community resources
- Clients’ autonomy and choices are always maximized
Please allow 1-2 working days for prescription refills that have been prescribed by UNI student health clinic providers. Prescriptions for controlled substances cannot be phoned in to a pharmacy. Because controlled substances are strictly controlled by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) students may encounter some difficulties getting their medication when away from home. A written, dated prescription is required.
Hours of Operation
Sessions are available by appointment. There is a fee for missed appointments. For more information contact the Student Health Clinic at 319-273-2009.
