Mental Health

The Student Health Center works closely with the Talley Center for Counseling Services. If you are having mental health issues, make an appointment with either us or the Talley Center for Counseling Services so we can help you.

The University physician has prepared an FAQ about antidepressant drugs. If you have an appointment to discuss medication for depression, you may want to read this before your visit.
