CAPS Psychiatric Services

CAPS has a staff of psychiatric providers who work in collaborative treatment with CAPS therapists.  If you and your psychotherapist think that medication may be a useful additional treatment approach, you'll be referred to one of our psychiatric providers for an initial evaluation.  As with our counseling and psychotherapy, there is no charge for CAPS psychiatric services.  Currently, approximately 25% of students seen at CAPS are referred for psychiatric medication treatment.
