Psychiatric mental health services are provided by Nurse Practitioners in collaboration with the Personal Counselors. Students experiencing an emotional health problem are encouraged to first schedule an appointment with a counselor by calling the main number for the Bergeron Wellness Center. Those who might require medication to manage symptoms will be referred to the Nurse Practitioners for evaluation and management and students who are prescribed medication are encouraged to have an ongoing relationship with their counselor. Most medication needs can be managed by the Nurse Practitioners. Some students may be referred to the Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner for consultation and collaborative care. It is not possible to schedule an appointment directly with the Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner.

Student Support Network
The Student Support Network (SSN) is a training program designed to give students the skills needed to identify, support, and refer peers who may be struggling with personal issues. The SSN looks to improve student recognition of the signs and symptoms of mental health distress, as well as alcohol and other drug abuse. Alongside increased recognition skills, students become more confident in reaching out to their friends, improve their ability to support peers in the moment, and know how to refer students to appropriate resources on campus.
This training is a mandatory six-week commitment for 1 hour and 15 minutes each week. If you are interested in learning more, or would like to sign-up, please email Catherine Welch at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802.654.2271.
