Psychotropic Medication Management and Refills At the discretion of the FNP, patients suffering from mental health illness will be started on psychotropic medication and offered follow-up with the Student Health Clinic. Students must establish care in the community or with their healthcare provider by the end of the semester for continued mental health medication management. No exceptions can be made for students that are not currently enrolled for the current semester.

Refills for psychotropic medication are contingent on the agreement that the student will provide copies of counseling progress notes to the Student Health Clinic if the student has been referred to an LPC or MSU Campus Counselor. (Authorization for Disclosure of Information)

ADHD Medication Management
Students requesting refills for ADHD medication will need to submit copies of their psychological evaluation and testing, and a progress note from the healthcare provider who provided the last medication refill. (Authorization for Disclosure of Information) Refills on ADHD medication will only be provided until students can access care from a psychiatric provider. This does not always guarantee the medication will be refilled. The Student Health Clinic and Counseling does not provide psychological evaluation and testing.

Students not diagnosed with ADHD and want to be tested should seek psychological evaluation and testing with a mental health practice site with primary focus on ADHD testing and psychological evaluation.
