These individuals are designated by the Chairperson of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science and may assist students in obtaining appropriate psychiatric assistance. They will serve as triage and may be able to help identify the most appropriate person either within the Emory Department of Psychiatry or among private practice psychiatrists in the community. Students on the Emory/Aetna student health insurance plan (offered by Aetna Student Health in 2013-2014) should be aware that a referral by a Student Health or Counseling Center clinician is required before seeking psychiatric and/or counseling care either at The Emory Clinic or in the community. For a list of Emory Core providers, go to www.aetnastudenthealth.com or call the Student Health and Counseling Services Insurance Office at 404-727-7560 or refer to http://studenthealth.emory.edu/hp/index.php
Another good resource is the Emory Cares 4 U website which has a wealth of important mental health information for students in one place. http://www.emorycaresforyou.emory.edu/

This program is a confidential service that is staffed by senior residents with faculty supervision. Services are charged on a sliding scale basis. The program has proven to be helpful to selected medical students, but referrals must be made by one of the triage faculty members in the Department of Psychiatry or by the Emory University Student Health Services psychiatrist. Although it is one of the lowest cost arrangements available, students should be aware that the clinic does not bill insurance, including the Emory student health insurance plan.
The Office of Medical Education & Student Affairs has compiled a list of therapists who have been of assistance to Emory University School of Medicine students in the past. Some are full-time or volunteer faculty members; others are not. This is only a limited list of practitioners and in no way attempts to be all-inclusive. There are many other psychiatric and counseling care options in the community for students, and students can also consult counselors/psychiatrists at Emory Student Health and Counseling Services for recommended off campus options. Once again, students on the Emory/Aetna student health insurance plan (offered by Aetna Student Health in 2011-2012) should be aware that a referral by a Student Health or Counseling Center clinician is required before seeking psychiatric and/or counseling care either at The Emory Clinic or in the community.
