Health Services offers treatment for mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, ADD/ADHD, etc. in our primary care clinic. These visits can be scheduled through our on-line system (Eagle OSH). Psychiatric services are also available to students once a student has been evaluated and referred to our psychiatrist by either a medical provider in our primary care clinic or a Georgia Southern Counseling Center psychologist/licensed counselor.

Customary fees apply for visits in the primary care clinic. Psychiatry visits are at no additional cost to enrolled students who have paid the semester health fee. However, if lab services are required, the customary lab fees will apply. If it is determined that the ongoing care does not need to be provided by a psychiatrist, the psychiatrist may refer the student back to their Student Health Services primary care provider or the Counseling Center for the continuation of care. Once the student is referred back to their Student Health Services primary care provider, the customary fee rates apply for these visits.

For ADD/ADHD medication management, please complete the ADD/ADHD consent form prior to your first appointment.

Health Services also collaborates with the Georgia Southern Counseling Center located on Forest Drive to assist in the care of our students. The Counseling Center provides individual and group counseling services by well-trained and experienced staff that includes psychologists and licensed counselors. These services are provided at no charge to students. Call 912-478-5541 for an appointment. Visit the Counseling Center’s website for additional information.

Health Services will not initiate allergy immunotherapy injections. You must have already received your first injection of the serum from your allergist. Health Services will only administer the subsequent injections as ordered by your allergist.  

Health Services will provide allergy injections to currently enrolled students. Georgia Southern faculty and staff may receive allergy injections at Health Services after payment of a semester fee for this particular service.

As a patient of the Allergy and Immunization Injection Office, you have the responsibility to be knowledgeable about and to follow the guidelines we have established for that office. Students, faculty, and staff are required to abide by these guidelines and failure to do so will result in termination of allergy injection services provided by Health Services.
