They will schedule you with an immediate emergency appointment.

Psychiatric services are now provided in the Student Health Service (SHS) by a board-certified psychiatrist. A referral from either a Student Health Service clinician or therapist from the University Counseling Center or from the community is required.
The psychiatrist is a medical doctor who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental, addictive, and emotional disorders. Psychiatrists are trained in the medical, psychological, and social components of mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders and utilize a broad range of treatment modalities, including diagnostic tests, prescribing medications, psychotherapy, and helping patients cope with stress and crises.
