Getting Started at CAPS
New to CAPS? Longer than 6 months since your last appointment? Start at triage.
If you have never been seen at CAPS or it’s been 6 months since your last visit, you will need to meet with a triage counselor to get started. Due to social distancing recommendations, all CAPS Triage services are currently available online via HIPAA secure Zoom.
Here's how it works:
Prior to a triage visit you must complete a brief screening. You may either 1) Schedule a triage by calling the CAPS Main office at 520-621-3334, Monday through Friday, from 9AM to 3:30PM or 2) do an immediate screening online Monday, Wednesday, or Friday between 1PM to 3:30PM. Simply click on the zoom link below to get started.
When you enter the triage screening meeting, a Care Coordinator will meet with you and guide you through the process of getting connected to a triage counselor. They will provide instructions for how to do your paperwork and schedule you with a triage counselor at a time that works for your schedule (Monday through Friday, 9AM-4PM).
During your triage appointment, your triage counselor will briefly assess your concerns and together you'll make a treatment plan that best fits your needs. Depending on your concerns, CAPS services include groups, assistance with community referrals, brief counseling, psychiatry, or connections to other University of Arizona resources.
If you've already been seen at CAPS within the past 6 months:
If you're last CAPS appointment was within the past 6 months, simply call for an appointment at 520-621-3334.
All ongoing groups and individual counseling sessions are conducted online via Zoom. Psychiatry visits are held by phone or Zoom.
If you're already seeing a counselor or psychiatry provider at CAPS and would like to sign up for a group, ask them for more information about what group might be a good fit for you.
