AUPSC Coronavirus Response – Update 6/1/2020

Auburn University has extended the period of remote learning and job duties until the Fall semester begins in August, following recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Since our staff and clinicians will not be on campus, all in-person appointments are postponed until the university resumes in-person operations. All appointments at this time are being conducted via telehealth. Clinicians have attempted contacting all current clients, and telehealth services are available for current clients at this time. Please note that if you are contacted, a clinician may be calling from a blocked number.

If you are on our wait list, please know that we are not initiating new therapy or assessment cases at this time, but you can remain on our wait list during Clinic closure. We will contact you to determine if you are still interested in services within the next few months, as well as to discuss estimated wait times. Options for services will include telehealth even when the clinic resumes in person services. If you are not on our wait list but are interested in receiving services from our Clinic in the future, please check back for updates regarding when we will reopen or email aupsc@auburn.edu.

We appreciate your patience during these unusual circumstances and value each and every one of you, and we look forward to serving you in person. Our clinic is working diligently to set up new client intakes via telehealth and updates will be posted on this website.

The AUPSC, which is a training clinic, reserves the right to determine the appropriateness and availability of services for all clients based on available resources and other professional and ethical considerations. The clinic will provide appropriate referrals when necessary. The Clinic does not provide crisis intervention, medication, and services for ongoing sexual or physical abuse.

Sincerely,

AUPSC Staff and Department of Psychological Sciences

 

AUPSC Coronavirus Response – Update 4/8/2020

The AUPSC is monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19/Coronavirus, and is taking recommended steps regarding how to respond to this evolving health concern. We are following guidelines from Auburn University and are not currently seeing clients for in-person sessions, in order to protect the health of our clients, students and staff.

If you are a current client, your graduate clinician will be getting in contact with you as soon as they are able to. If you are a client on our waitlist, please know that we are not initiating new therapy or assessment cases until further notice. We are sincerely sorry for any distress or inconvenience that these changes cause. We do not take these decisions lightly, as the heart of our priority at this time remains the continuity of care for our clients, training for our students, and the broader mental health and wellbeing of our community.

Please refer to the Auburn University and Auburn University Campus Safety and Security websites and social media pages for updates regarding normal operations for the University. 

During this time of stress and anxiety, we urge everyone to take time to care for themselves, and for one another.

Sincerely,

AUPSC Staff and Department of Psychological Sciences
