Nebraska Medicine – University Health Center offers psychiatric services. Our psychiatric team is comprised of medically trained providers that offer assessment, education and medication management for a wide array of conditions such as depression, anxiety, life stressors, eating disorders, ADD/ADHD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and more.

For those who are new to psychiatric services or are uncertain if this type of care is needed, we first have students schedule a brief appointment with a Counseling and Psychological Services therapist. The therapist will assess the situation and help determine if a psychiatric evaluation is appropriate or recommended. If so, they will assist the student in making an appointment with a member of the Health Center psychiatry team or a psychiatrist in the community.

For those who have already seen a psychiatrist and would like to schedule an appointment with a member of the Health Center’s psychiatry team, please call 402.472.5000.
