All psychiatry appointments are now provided in-person and by appointment only.

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 with a professional counselor. If a psychiatric intake is needed, the counselor 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 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, thoughts of suicide, 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.

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

After completing thorough evaluations, psychiatrists can prescribe medications to help treat mental disorders. While the precise mechanism of action of 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
