Referrals for Long Term Difficulties: 

Students suffering from major mental illnesses and/or severe substance addiction requiring inpatient hospitalization and/or intensive long term care will be referred to a community mental health center, the UAMS Psychiatric Clinic, or to appropriate resources in the community. The cost for this level of care is the responsibility of the student (it is important to maintain health insurance coverage without lapse through school).


For students who have been diagnosed with ADHD or think that they may have ADHD, the Student Wellness Program has a policy that requires these students to either present past neuropsychological testing or be tested by a neuropsychologist.

This policy is necessary to protect students who may use stimulants as a drug of abuse.  These medications are highly regulated by the FDA and as such we prescribe these only to students who absolutely need them.
