Crisis Triage Appointments are available Monday–Friday, 8:30-3:30, by walking in to CAPS. You can also call CAPS at 404-727-7450 for consultation by phone.

What to expect during my Crisis Triage Appointment:
Students who are experiencing a psychological emergency can stop by CAPS Monday-Friday, 8:30-3:30, and ask to speak with the crisis counselor on-call. Please note that these appointments are typically brief consultations lasting 15-20 minutes with a focus on assessing for safety and/or immediate need, and then creating a plan for next steps, which may include scheduling a follow-up initial assessment appointment or connecting students to additional campus or community resources.
