If you are in need of psychiatric medication, CPG offers a limited amount of psychiatric care for the Clark community.
Because the demand for psychiatry appointments is very high, CPG offers medication appointments with a psychiatrist for assessment and stabilization of symptoms. Once a student’s mental health symptoms are stabilized with medication, they are either referred to a physician at Clark University Health Services or a psychiatrist in the community for continued medication management. Because psychiatric resources are very limited at CPG and in the Worcester community, we urge you to keep your mental health prescriber (or Pediatrician / Primary Care Physician) from home. Many students currently do this, and follow-up appointments can be easily scheduled during school breaks.
For the fall 2021 and spring 2022 semesters, all psychiatry appointments will be conducted virtually.
However, if it’s not possible to keep your mental health prescriber from home, we recommend that you contact a Worcester area mental health clinic to arrange an initial appointment. A list of specific mental health clinics in the Worcester area can be found on the Off-Campus Mental Health Resources webpage on the CPG website.
Psychiatric medication management services at CPG are available only for students who are actively involved in counseling at CPG.
