    • Thinking about harming yourself or others.
    • Serious concern about another student's safety or well-being.
    • Inability to function (e.g., get out of bed, eat, shower, etc.).
    • Experience with a recent traumatic event.

    For in-person Walk-in consultation (currently not available):
    CAPS clinicians are available for brief crisis consultations.  Walk-in clients will compete a brief screen form to determine their level of need.  Clients will be seen in order of level of crisis/need.  Walk-in consultations are NOT therapy appointments, but should be utilized for those experiencing a mental health crisis.  Those not in crisis can schedule a phone appointment (typically within 1-3 days).
