CAPS provides case management services for students seeking referrals to psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and other mental health resources in the community.
What is case management?
Case management is a collaborative process between Case Manager and student. Case management assesses, plans, coordinates, and evaluates the options and services required to meet the student’s health and human service needs. It’s characterized by advocacy, communication, and resource management and promotes quality and cost-effective interventions and outcomes.
What is a Case Manager?
A case manager has a special skillset to: answer your questions, discuss your support options, help you identify and complete next steps. Ultimately, a case manager can connect you to resources on or off campus!
What assistance can a case manager provide?
A case manager might help:
discuss different therapy or other resources you can access (on or off campus)
create a personalized list of therapist referrals based on your resources/preferences, and help you move forward with next steps in that process
Investigate your health insurance to determine your benefits/session costs
If you don’t have health insurance, we can explore low cost/no cost options that might be available
