Student Health Services Center

The Student Health Services Center (SHSC) at Purdue University Calumet offers students primary care and prevention services. In addition to these services the SHSC also, with the consent of students, works closely with the Counseling Center when medication(s) (psychotropic) are deemed necessary, in addition to counseling. Both the SHSC and the Counseling Center are committed to research which shows medication alone does not provide as successful a treatment as when medication and counseling are combined.
