Student Health was organized to provide a broad range of physical health and psychological services to students at minimal or no cost. As one combined operation, coordinated efforts between health and counseling can be delivered efficiently to meet student needs and reduce interference with students' academic programs and priorities. Student Health focuses on the delivery of outpatient primary care, medical consultation and referral, wellness education, human sexuality services and health insurance programs. Student Health provides short-term mental health services, including individual counseling, personal growth group experiences, study skills and test anxiety workshops, consultation and training with other departments on campus and referral to other mental health agencies. Student Health is committed to a student development approach, which is reflected in an emphasis on wellness and self-responsibility. / The major programs offered by Student Health cover virtually all aspects of health care. Physical health activities involve primary care by a comprehensive staff of physicians, nurses and other support personnel. The clinic is capable of addressing any outpatient needs including referral to specialists in Brookings and elsewhere. Wellness and health education programs are emphasized in clinic care and outreach activities. Mandatory immunization management, medical testing clinics and medical record reviews are conducted in cooperation with academic and administrative departments. Management of student health insurance programs is also conducted through the clinic administrative staff.
