Our services include: 

  • Same day Crisis Care evaluations
  • Individual, couples, and group psychotherapy
  • Consultation to students and the general University community
  • Psychiatric evaluation and medication management
  • Prescription assistance for those without funds
  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) screening, Learning Disability Assessment and General Psychological Testing
  • Substance abuse evaluation, treatment, and psycho-educational diversion programs
  • Eating disorders evaluation and treatment

Students who have purchased the CU Student Gold Health Insurance are seen in the clinic without additional payment, except for $20 copays for individual therapy after 15 visits per policy year (August 18, 2013 to August 17, 2014). Fees also apply for ADHD/learning disability assessments. 

Students without the Student Gold Health Insurance may be seen on a fee-for-service basis.

We strive to see students as soon as possible. Some delays may occur for appointments depending on demand for services.
