Short-Term Psychiatric Services

A client in an on-going counseling relationship at MTSU Counseling Services may be referred to an internal psychiatrist for a consult. If psychiatric services are recommended by the counselor at MTSU Counseling Services, the client has the option to be scheduled for a psychiatric evaluation with a psychiatrist for medication treatment.

The client’s initial visit with the psychiatrist is an evaluation that focuses on why the client was referred. The psychiatrist will talk to the client about treatment recommendations and discuss a preliminary treatment plan.

MTSU Counseling Services does not provide long-term psychiatric services, medication management, emergency psychiatric evaluations, or emergency prescription services. At an appropriate time, the psychiatrist will work with the client to transition to a provider in the community.

On some occasions, a client’s concern requires care that is beyond our scope of care at MTSU Counseling Services. If this occurs, we will work with the client to establish treatment with a psychiatrist outside the center.
