Mental Health Services
Campus Health Services provides confidential psychiatric services at no-charge to any student enrolled at UofL for a variety of mental health issues including:
- New or existing depression or other mood problems
- Panic attacks or other forms of anxiety
- Eating disorders
- Sleep problems
- Difficulty concentrating
- Feeling totally "stressed out" or overwhelmed
- Problems with alcohol or drugs
Licensed, board-certified faculty psychiatrists provide complete initial psychiatric evaluations, follow up care (including medication maintentance and psychotherapy), referral to other community or campus resources and referrals for hospitalization, if needed.
Students are seen by appointment only and must be referred by a CHS primary care provider, a Counseling Center counselor, or the Director of the PEACC Center. Students who have an outside psychiatrist and require coordination of their care while enrolled at UofL, should have their outside psychiatrist contact the CHS to speak directly with one of our psychiatrists.
Appointments are available Mondays and Fridays between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and Thursdays 8:30 - 11:30 a.m. and 1:00-5:00 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling 852-6479 (CHS) or 852-6585 (Counseling Center).
Offices are located at both the Cardinal Station Health Center as well as the HSC campus downtown.
Please be avised that medications are not provided free through the service. Additional charges may be incurred for lab tests, other specialty tests and hopsitalization. Therefore, we strongly encourage students to obtain health insurance.
