Mental health is an essential part of overall wellness. Along with physical health, it can have a profound influence on daily life­—from academic to professional to personal experiences.

CSU Health Network offers psychiatry services to support student’s emotional, behavioral and mental health needs.

If you are concerned about your mental health, call CSU Health Network at (970) 491-7121 to schedule a screening appointment. If a psychiatric intake is needed, we will assist you in setting up an appointment.

  • All appointments for a new psychiatric evaluation (new patient intake) are in-person appointments.
  • If you are interested in scheduling a follow-up psychiatry appointment, these are also in person and can be scheduled by calling (970) 491-7121
  • If you have received psychiatric care in the past, your care can be transferred to our team while you are attending CSU. We ask that you work with our Medical Records Department at (970) 491-2349 to provide copies of your previous records prior to establishing care with a psychiatric or medical clinician on our team.
  • CSU Health Network Psychiatry Services is only able to provide ongoing management of students with previously diagnosed and treated attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Due to demand and limited capacity, we are unable to provide any new evaluations for a diagnosis of ADHD.

People seek psychiatric help for many reasons. The problems can be sudden, such as a panic attack, frightening hallucinations, or hearing voices. The problems may be more long-term, such as feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or anxiousness that never seem to lift, or problems functioning that cause everyday life to feel distorted or out of control. If you are having thoughts of suicide and are in danger, please contact emergency services or go to the nearest emergency room.

Psychiatry and Medical Services can assess these concerns and determine a possible medication solution, if appropriate, to support ongoing stability and student success.

After completing thorough evaluations, psychiatric providers can prescribe medications to help treat mental disorders. While the precise mechanism of action of many psychiatric medications is not fully understood, they may beneficially modulate chemical signaling and communication within the brain, which may reduce some symptoms of psychiatric disorders.

We provide diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of various mental, emotional, or behavioral conditions, such as:

• Anxiety
• Depression
• Bipolar disorder
• Schizophrenia
• Obsessive compulsive disorder
• Substance use disorders
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
• Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
• Other mental health issues

We also collaborate with the medical providers in the Health Network to provide consultation and recommendations, as well as to provide a higher level of care if needed for students.

The cost for psychiatry services at CSU Health Network is dependent on your specific health insurance plan. Learn more about using health insurance at CSU Health Network.
