Psychiatry

Emory University Student Health Services offers free psychiatric services for all enrolled Emory students.  Services are also available for spouses/domestic partners, if the spouse/partner is enrolled in the Aetna Student Health Insurance plan.  EUSHS psychiatry services are located in the 1525 Clifton Road Building.  Patients should check in on the second floor.

Services offered include diagnostic psychiatric evaluations, medication evaluations, and long-term management of psychiatric medications.  We can also offer referrals/recommendations for Atlanta area-based mental health providers for those students who wish to seek services off-campus.

As part of our commitment to our Emory students, their families and the Emory community at large, Emory University Student Health Services strives to be readily available to all students for mental health evaluations, crises and triage services.  Sometimes, the management of long-standing, chronic and/or complex psychiatric conditions is beyond the scope and/or capabilities of our service, given our commitment to crisis management and timely intervention, our short-term treatment model and our available psychiatrist resources.

Over the past several years, the number of students at Emory requesting evaluation and care for attention deficit-hyperactivity related disorders (ADHD/ADD) has escalated tremendously.  Providing services to this large and increasing volume of ADHD/ADD patients made it impossible to maintain the availability of quality psychiatric services for students with immediate mental health needs, potentially putting these other high-risk patients in jeopardy. Therefore, at this time, we are not accepting any new patients for medication management of stimulant (ADHD/ADD) medications at EUSHS Psychiatry. Some examples of these types of medicine include Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta, Focalin, and Vyvanse.  For information about available ADHD/ADD services in the Emory area, including formal diagnostic testing for ADHD, please click here.
