Welcome to CAPS

CAPS' therapists are professionals specifically trained in college mental health.



Initial Contact with CAPS

Initial contact begins with a Walk-In consultation session with a CAPS therapist. After completing our initial paperwork you will speak with a staff therapist who will assess immediate and on-going concerns to determine the most helpful services, based on individual need. The assessment and disposition may involve services at CAPS, other resources on campus, or services offered in the community.
