During certain times of the year CAPS experiences a high volume of students, which may create longer than usual wait times for initial screening appointments. If you’re in crisis, please call 303-492-2277. If you need support and/or skill building tools to make it through the rest of the semester, please check our workshops that are offered Monday through Friday. If you would like to meet with a CAPS provider for a brief, informal consultation and are not in crisis, please check out Let’s Talk for drop-in hours.

Screening appointments

During an initial screening appointment, a CAPS provider will work with you to develop a personalized care plan. This may include one or more services offered by CAPS, such as:

  • Groups
  • Workshops
  • Brief individual therapy 

Schedule a screening appointment

Single session therapy

Providers meet one-on-one with students to discuss and pinpoint strategies for single concerns. Rather than initiating ongoing counseling, these one-time, goal-oriented appointments allow students to gameplan mindful approaches to primary concerns in a single session.

Brief therapy

Brief individual therapy is intended to help students understand and address a variety of struggles, difficulties or concerns. Clients may meed with their CAPS provider on a regular, recurring basis or as needed.

Many students utilize 3-5 sessions and generally meet every 2-4 weeks to meet their mental health goals.

Providers work with students develop treatment plans tailored to an individual's concerns, which may include referrals to other campus or community resources, groups or workshops, or referrals to community providers for specialized treatment or longer-term care.
