Important Short-Term Changes to CAPS Services

  • As a COVID-19 preventive measure, CAPS offices at Olin Health Center, MSU Student Union, and the Neighborhoods are closed.
  • Students in crisis: Please call 9-1-1, go to your nearest emergency room, or call CAPS anytime day or night at 517-355-8270 and press "1" at the prompt to receive assistance from a crisis counselor over the phone.
  • CAPS counseling and psychiatry staff will work remotely to help meet the needs of MSU students.
    • Established clients with scheduled appointments will be offered phone or Zoom sessions. Clients will be contacted and given instructions.
    • Established psychiatry patients can contact their provider through the MyMSUHealth patient portal at https://mymsuhealth.hc.msu.edu (patients concerned about potential cost should mention this to their provider).
    • Patients needing a prescription refill prior to their next appointment can use the MyMSUHealth patient portal to make the request: https://mymsuhealth.hc.msu.edu
    • Students not in crisis: If you do not have a scheduled appointment, and/or are not already established with CAPS, you have the option to complete a CAPS-Phone-Request for a phone consultation appointment to discuss your needs and assist with connecting you with available resources.
