ADHD Guide for Students

For Initial Assessment and Treatment (“I think I might have ADHD?”)
Health and Counseling Services providers have experience in the evaluation and care of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Students meet with a medical provider (NP, PA, or M.D.) for an initial assessment. After the intake appointment, recommendations will be made for your follow-up care. If you have not had AD/HD testing, you will be referred off campus for testing before you can receive any medication for AD/HD.
Hampshire College Health and Counseling Services is near admissions and the Red Barn.
Call for an intake appointment: 413.559.5458
Fax: 413.559.5583

To Transfer Care of Previously Diagnosed ADHD to Hampshire College Health and Counseling:
Students wishing to have their medication managed at Hampshire Health and Counseling need to have records from their previous provider(s) transferred to the clinic before an intake appointment is scheduled. This must include a complete educational evaluation conducted by a qualified psycho-educational diagnostician or licensed psychologist and should have been administered within three years of admission to Hampshire College.

Records may be brought to health and counseling, faxed to 413.559.5583, or emailed to healthservices@hampshire.edu, or mailed to:
