Initial Contact With CAPS

Students who have never utilized our services in the past or are returning after an absence from services are encouraged to walk-in to one of our main offices during the hours indicated above, Monday – Friday (Please see our main page for Walk-In locations). Our staff therapists will meet with students for an initial consultation to help the student define their presenting problem and to determine how CAPS may assist the student with their concerns.

The therapist will gather information to assess urgency and risk and to facilitate the matching of services based on individual need. The therapist will discuss therapy options and resources available based on the issues discussed.

Depending on the severity of issues involved, the therapist may:

  • extend the time they spend with the student to address emergencies.
  • as needed, recommend an intake appointment.
  • refer the student to the Disposition Team for scheduling a future intake within a short timeframe based on availability.
  • suggest alternative resources on campus or in the community, for services not offered at CAPS.
