Service Limitations

我们有执照的心理健康临床医生将帮助学生确定他们的需求是否可以通过健康+咨询得到满足. The different factors influencing the decision can be complex. Most often, external referrals are based upon the students’ need for longer term, specialized or more intensive treatment. If a referral appears to be the best way for the student to receive the treatment needed, the W+C staff will do their best to connect the student to a suitable provider.

Factors may include:

  • Students whose schedules do not fit with W+C’s hours of operation
  • Students who demonstrate a serious lack of motivation or engagement in treatment, 如不按时赴约或缺乏对建议的跟进
  • Students who are already receiving counseling services from another provider
  • 需要持续或强化支持以治疗慢性严重精神健康状况的学生
  • Students with issues that may require a student to be seen more than 1x/week
  • Students experiencing significant levels of distress, 谁需要立即住院或细心的门诊治疗和/或正在遭受严重的功能中断
  • 短期治疗模式对诊断或临床问题有害或不适当的学生
  • Students with a history of numerous suicide attempts, severe self injury or multiple psychiatric hospitalizations
  • 有明显或慢性饮食失调症状的学生,需要密集的门诊或住院治疗
  • 有严重或慢性药物滥用的学生,需要强化门诊治疗, residential treatment, detox or hospitalization
  • 有活跃精神病症状的学生有功能进行性恶化的危险,需要强化治疗以稳定
  • Students whose needs fall outside the clinical expertise of W+C staff
Diagnosis and Medications

由于需要进行广泛的评估和测试,我们无法提供ADHD或自闭症的正式诊断. We encourage you to work with your primary care provider, insurance, or psychiatric provider for assessment and diagnosis. 

We are happy to help you with support, coping skills and resources. You should also utilize our Disability Accommodations.  

Our clinical therapists do not prescribe or manage medications. However, for mild to moderate depression and anxiety cases, 我们可以根据学生的需求提出建议,并与我们的执业护士合作安排治疗计划.
