Students engage our services via a triage system. No appointment is needed to access this system. Eligible individuals may visit anytime between 9:00 am - 12:00 pm or 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm Monday - Thursday or 9:30 - 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm on Friday to receive same-day attention by a mental health provider. Immediate crisis intervention is provided if a student’s needs are emergent. From triage, students can be referred to any of our in-house referral options including brief individual therapy, brief couples therapy, group therapy, academic interventions, case management, and/or medication evaluation. Students are referred to the community when they would best be served by more ongoing therapy, or if their needs are outside our scope of service.
CAPS staff routinely consult with medical providers in Campus Health. Additionally, CAPS staff collaborate with other campus departments, e.g. Residential Life; The Office of the Dean of Students; the Covenant Scholars program; Office of International Students and Scholars; Academic Advising; and the LGBTQ Center.
