Students may walk in to CAPS to meet with the Crisis counselor on-call from Monday–Friday, 8:30 AM-3:30 PM ET.

What to expect during my Crisis Triage Appointment at CAPS:
Please note that crisis 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 screening appointment or connecting students to additional campus or community resources.
