Mental Health Medication

The Hamre Center prescribes and manages mental health medications. All members of our medical provider staff can meet with you and either continue medications you started at home, initiate new prescriptions, or talk to you about ways to integrate medical and counseling care for your mental health.  For those who require specialty psychiatric care, we can either refer you off-campus or refer you to our part-time psychiatrist, Dr. Baca, who sees students in person and via telehealth.


  • How can I use this service?

    For most mental health medication needs, simply make an appointment with a member of the medical team. Like most medical visits, these are free of charge. Meetings with the part-time psychiatrist Dr. Baca are only scheduled after meeting with a Hamre Center health care provider (counseling or medical), who can provide the necessary referral. Dr. Baca sees students in-person and telehealth 1-2 times per month.

  • What if I need to cancel my appointment with the part-time psychiatrist?

    You may cancel your appointment by calling our office at 651-696-6275 or via email ([email protected]). For the part-time psychiatrist’s schedule, we require you cancel at least 24 hours in advance so that another student can utilize this appointment time.  No-showing your appointment may jeopardize your ability to continue use of this service.

  • What if I need a medication refill?

    First call your pharmacy or check your prescription bottle to see if refills already available. If no refills are available, please make a follow-up appointment with your prescribing provider. If you will run out of medication before your scheduled appointment, contact your provider in the patient portal (or call the front desk) to request short-term refills.

  • What if I need to contact the part-time psychiatrist between appointment times?

    Message Dr. Baca the part-time psychiatrist over the patient portal. However, due to her part-time status another one of our medical staff may reach out to you about your concerns.
