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


Brief therapy

Brief individual therapy can be recommended by a CAPS provider during an initial screening appointment. If brief individual therapy is recommended, you will typically meet with your CAPS clinician every 3 to 4 weeks.


Ongoing therapy

CAPS does not offer long-term or weekly therapy. 

If you are interested in weekly or ongoing therapy, we encourage you to visit Thriving Campus to connect with a local provider. Thriving Campus lets you search for providers based on a number of filters, including insurance, location, specialties and more.

Note: Students with the CU Gold Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) who are interested in long-term or weekly therapy can use Thriving Campus to find providers by filtering for Anthem insurance.
