Psychiatric Services

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

Medication Refills:

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.
