CAPS/CHS LGBTQIA Resources and Treatment Info

At Campus Health, we know that many gender and sexual minority (GSM) people are hesitant to seek medical and mental health-care experiences. Campus Health is dedicated to providing high quality, respectful, and gender-affirming care for all of our students. 

Students who identify as trans* including Trans-masculine/transmen, Trans-feminine/transwomen, transgender, transsexual, gender non-conforming, genderqueer and non-binary identities will be welcomed and supported. All CHS personnel have been Safe Zone trained, and opportunities exist for more training each year.  Collaboration between medical and mental health staff ensures a continuity of care and direct communication between your treatment team members via the multidisciplinary Trans Treatment Team, which meets periodically to review CHS cases and policy. We welcome all enrolled undergrad and graduate students, with sensitive inclusivity of all races, cultures, classes, and religions.

Mental Health Services at CAPS

Mental Health services through Counseling and Psych Services (now with two locations) include brief individual, couples and group counseling, referrals to LGBT community providers, therapy and support groups, and periodic workshops. CAPS also provides short-term psychiatric services.

Medical Services

through the Women's Health Clinic (third floor, Campus Health)

Medical services at CHS include consultation, initiation and continuation of hormonal treatment, letters of support and referral for surgical transition, and general wellness, including at-birth bodies, and bodies in any stage of medical transition. We also offer STI testing and treatment, birth control, and safer sex tools.
