Mental Health Services
If you are currently receiving treatment from a physician back home, your care may be continued here while you are an ACU student. In order for our psychiatrist, to ensure continuity of care, it will be important for you to complete an Authorization to Release Information form when you first arrive on campus.
We offer extensive psychiatric outpatient care at the ACU Medical and Counseling Care Center.
