Medical & Clinical Services

Our medical department, overseen by a Registered Nurse, provides assessment and reassessment of our students' physical, nutritional, and oral health care needs through direct or referred health care services.

Psychiatric services are provided by a consulting psychiatrist, who will assess each student within a week of admission. This initial assessment is followed by ongoing treatment, including medication management and evaluation, throughout each student's stay. 


The student and family are actively engaged in any consideration of the use, change, or discontinuation of medication. The psychiatrist also participates in weekly consultations with the student's treatment team.
