A board-certified psychiatrist is available to provide outpatient care for students needing psychiatric treatment. Most SHS staff physicians can provide care for patients with uncomplicated or stable mental health concerns. Counseling is available through the Student Counseling Center.
The services of the psychiatrist may be through referral from Student Counseling or Student Health Services providers, although students may be seen without a referral simply by calling (309) 438-2778.
Charges can be paid by cash, check or credit card. Charges may also be posted to the user’s University account. Students may obtain an itemized bill from the Business Office suitable for insurance filing. Students may submit bills first to primary insurance and then to Student Insurance. The presence or absence of insurance does not affect access to the clinic, nor does it affect the charges incurred in the clinic.
