In order to meet with one of our psychiatric providers, students must be participating in counseling at CAPS. Your 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 Resource Specialist may be able to help you get connected with a community provider.
If your needs fall within the scope of practice, the services you receive have been covered through the health fee you have already paid.
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.
Per CAPS policy, psychiatric providers do not provide ADD/ADHD medication. Your CAPS counselor or Resource Specialist 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.
CAPS clinicians and psychiatric providers have access to each others’ notes through our record system. In addition, clinicians and providers consult with each other if needed.
