The staff members of the PSC are available to Xavier alumni to provide psychological services for personal and professional concerns.
We conduct initial consultations with alumni, and will offer referrals to the PSC staff or will facilitate community referrals to mental health professionals.
The consultation can be arranged by calling the PSC Director, Dr. Salsman, at 745-3531 between 9:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Monday through Friday.
In case of an emergency after hours, the individual should go to the emergency room of the closest hospital.
If treatment is recommended, several treatment options are available:
- Reduced-Fee Community Services at the PSC
- Services by a mental health provider in the community.
The decision as to whether to seek services on campus or in the community will be affected by the availability of a PSC staff member who has the indicated area of expertise.
If insurance will be used to help cover the fee for service, the individual should explore the provider status of a PSC staff member with the indicated managed-care panel.
