UHS offers a variety of helpful mental health services. UHS primary care providers evaluate mental health concerns from a medical perspective, which may identify underlying causes and treatment opportunities. Specialists for sleep, psychiatry, and eating disorders provide consultation, diagnosis and treatment. Clinical Social Workers support patients with case management and referrals. Wolverine Wellness offers Wellness Coaching and Collegiate Recovery Program. Read more below.
UHS primary care clinicians:
- Evaluate anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and sleep problems
- Inform about treatment options, including medications
- Prescribe and manage medications for mental health conditions, including confirmed diagnoses of Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Refer to UHS Psychiatry Clinic or UHS Eating and Body Image Concerns Clinic for consultation (available only to U-M students or UHS Prepaid Plan members who have a referral from a UHS clinician)
- Provide information about counseling resources including Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)
We recommend that patients make an appointment with a UHS clinician and continue to see that person. Seeing the same clinician allows patients to develop a relationship and helps ensure quality care.
Clinical Social Workers provide:
- Screenings for depression
- Screening for alcohol use disorder
- Case management
In addition to clinical services for mental health, UHS Wolverine Wellness provides the following non-clinical services:
- Wellness Coaching is holistic approach to examining how personal wellbeing interacts with one's values, goals and motivations.
- The Collegiate Recovery Program supports students who are in recovery from alcohol or other drug addiction, nurturing their sobriety so they can excel in college. In addition, the program serves as a resource for people seeking information about recovery and what steps to take in order to stop hurting and start healing.
