Psychiatry

Psychiatry Services

University Health Services offers outpatient psychiatric care focused on evaluation and medication management. Our clinical approach includes a review of previous treatment, a thorough diagnostic evaluation, and a proposed treatment plan.

Psychiatric services are available by referral only.  We recommend that referrals come from your established primary care physician, therapist, or psychiatrist. To appropriately coordinate care, UHC will need a release of information (ROI) so we can obtain records from your current/previous provider(s).

Non-emergency phone calls received by the psychiatry department after 4:00 p.m. may not be returned until the next business day.

Students may be referred to psychiatric providers in the community. Despite active recruitment, there is a shortage of psychiatrists in the Eugene-Springfield area. We recommend that students who are already being treated by a psychiatrist or primary care clinician remain under the care of their current providers if possible.

ADHD Management

University Health Services does not generally perform evaluations or prescribe medications for ADHD. 

If you are taking medications for ADHD prescribed elsewhere, we encourage you to continue your treatment relationship with your own physician, as health services clinicians do not provide refills for ADHD prescriptions originating elsewhere. Outside prescriptions, however, can be filled at the University Health Services pharmacy. Learning Disability (LD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) services are available through the HEDCO Clinic in the College of Education.
