Psychiatric Services

In order to meet with one of our psychiatric providers, students must first have an Initial Appointment with one of our counselors. The counselor will meet with you and, if appropriate, make a referral recommendation for you to see one of the psychiatric providers at CAPS. Students whose psychiatric needs are beyond the scope of CAPS, will be connected with a referral in the community. Our Treatment Coordinator may be able to help you get connected with a community provider.

Are there any costs for psychiatric services?

If your needs fall within the scope of practice, the services you receive have been covered through the health fee you have already paid.

What if I run out of medication before the appointment with my new psychiatry provider?

You need to call your current psychiatric provider and request a refill. CAPS will not provide refill request for students who have not been seen at the center.

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

Per CAPS policy, psychiatric providers do not provide ADD/ADHD medication. Your CAPS counselor or Treatment Coordinator can assist you in connecting you with a provider in the community that can better serve your needs. In addition, you can contact CAPS and request our psychiatric referral sheet for providers in the community.
