Psychiatric services through Cook Counseling Center are available to any Virginia Tech student who has paid the student health fee. The process of psychiatric treatment begins by scheduling an appointment with a counselor. The counselor will evaluate your symptoms by performing a background screening and assessing the results. It is up to your counselor to recommend psychiatric services if they are needed, however, they may also recommend individual therapy, group therapy, or participation in one of Cook Counseling Center’s workshops (such as relaxation training).

More information can be requested from Cook Counseling Center at 540-231-6557.

Services include:

  • Psychiatric evaluations and treatment
  • Psychiatric medications
  • Individual and group therapy in collaboration with counseling staff
  • Treatment for ADHD (stimulant medication requires psychoeducational testing)
