Getting Started at CAPS
New to CAPS? Come to triage!
If you've never been seen at CAPS or it's been 6 months since your last CAPS appointment, you will need to meet with a triage counselor before you can make an appointment.
CAPS Triage is a walk-in brief screening service, available Monday through Friday, 9am-4pm during the academic year (12-4pm during the summer) at CAPS Main and CAPS North. When you check in, you'll be asked to show us your CatCard and complete triage paperwork. The Triage counselor will briefly assess your concern, and together you'll decide on specific follow-up/treatment services (such as group, counseling, or psychiatry) on- or off-campus.
Any subsequent visits are scheduled by appointment.
If you've already been seen at CAPS within the past 6 months, simply call for an appointment (CAPS Main: 520-621-3334, CAPS North: 520-626-3100). Please note that at busy times during the semester, it can take as long as 3-4 weeks to see a CAPS psychiatric provider, so allow ample time. 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.
If it's been longer than 6 months since your last CAPS appointment, you will need to meet with a triage counselor before you can make an appointment.
