Short-term counseling, evaluations by the Center's Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner and monthly medication follow-ups are provided free of charge to enrolled students at Suffolk University. On-site consultations with the nurse practitioner are available only to students that are active clients of the Counseling Center. In cases where medication is recommended as part of the ongoing treatment in the Counseling Center, students bear full responsibility for payment of prescribed medications.
In cases where students require services beyond that scope of those offered in the Counseling Center, staff psychologists will assist in making appropriate and timely referrals to off-campus mental health professionals. Students are responsible for the payment of fees associated with off-campus mental health treatment. Counseling Center staff members will assist in the completion of the appropriate referral documentation in order to assure students' eligibility for ongoing treatment.
