Service Documentation Requests

 Various program on campus require some sort of review or documentation of attendance at CAPS.   CAPS clinicians will NOT consider providing such documentation without the appropriate therapeutic relationship which may take several appointment visits to establish (e.g. Study Abroad program).  Providing such documentation is at the clinical discretion of the CAPS clinician.  Please note CAPS does not provide any Emotional Support Animal Letters.
