Today’s post comes to us from Salem Al-Ayyadhi, Communications Coordinator for the LSU Student Health Center. Read on to find out more about what services are available to your student!
The LSU Student Health Center provides quality, affordable, and accessible health care to LSU students in a large outpatient facility on campus. We offer medical, mental health, and wellness services.
Primary-care clinicians, gynecologists, specialty physicians, and nurses provide medical care to the students of LSU. Laboratory, diagnostic imaging, physical rehabilitation, and pharmacy services are also available in the medical clinics.
Students who seek counseling services may visit Mental Health. Services are provided by licensed mental health professionals from the fields of clinical psychology, clinical social work, and psychiatry, as well as advanced graduate students in these disciplines. Mental Health Service offers individual and group therapy related to stress, anxiety, depression, family and relationship difficulties, and others.
Wellness and Health Promotion provides health education and nutrition services to students in the campus community of LSU. Educational assistance is available in alcohol, other drugs, sexual violence, and safer sex practices. Students who are interested in peer education can join Student Health Advocates, a student organization that presents innovative health-related programs to other students on campus.
The Student Health Center is open Monday–Friday from 8am-5pm, and on Saturdays from 8-11:30am (Medical Clinic and Pharmacy only) during the fall and spring semesters. Summer and holiday hours are Monday-Friday, 8am-4:15pm. Please visit www.lsu.edu/shc for more information about our location, hours, and services.
