The Center for Cadet Counseling is aware of the
genetic/biological basis of some mental health problems and makes appropriate
referrals to psychiatric service providers when such influences negatively
impact clients’ mental health. The CCC has contracted with a local
Psychiatrist to provide psychiatric services to cadets who have been referred
by a CCC clinician.
Only cadets who are currently engaged in ongoing treatment
at the Center for Cadet Counseling (e.g., weekly, twice-monthly, or at least
monthly sessions) are eligible to receive psychiatric services through the
CCC. Cadets who are interested exclusively in psychiatric services will
be given off-Post referrals.
Frequency of counseling appointments are at the discretion
of the Counselor and Psychiatrist, but the counselor must conclude that an
active therapeutic effect is being generated. Therapy should not be
initiated or maintained solely for the purpose of accessing and/or maintaining
