Our on site Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner will collaborate with a student’s former prescriber upon enrollment to ensure continuity and consistency of care. Integral to our collaborative process is the partnership between the clinical team, the counseling team, and the academic teams with a student and his or her family. Within this collaborative partnership, psycho-education pertaining to medication rationale, alternative options to medication, possible adverse effect profile, and efficacy assessment measures is provided to both student and family. This serves to further enhance safety and to promote autonomy and mature, responsible self care for a student. Communication with parents is frequent and on an as needed basis.
