CAPS has a psychiatrist available for consultation on a one-day-per-week basis.
The psychiatrist is available to students who are currently seeing a CAPS counselor and who are using, or interested in considering psychotropic medications for adjunctive treatment. Our psychiatrist will in the process of getting to know you, will discuss the appropriateness of such medications. Sometimes, however, students for whom psychiatric consultation is appropriate may have to be referred to an off-campus provider if the psychiatrists’ limited availability does not allow the student a timely consultation, or if the student’s needs exceed the Service’s resources.
