Referral Coordination Services

CAPS referral coordination services can help you connect with off-campus therapeutic or psychiatric care in your area.

To schedule an appointment, please contact MSU CAPS at (517) 355-8270 and ask to be connected with a referral specialist. You can schedule an appointment to meet in person for referral coordination, or request contact via phone or email. The referral specialist is also open for drop-in appointments through CAPS same-day screening services, outlined here

This service is available to any enrolled MSU student registered for one or more credits, including students who study or live outside of the East Lansing area and students who have not previously received services through CAPS. It's also available to the spouse or partners of MSU students.

Referral assistance can:

  • Help you identify available community practitioners in your area
  • Find community providers whose clinical backgrounds and specializations match with your personal and therapeutic goals
  • Help you find an in-network provider who works with your insurance policy
  • Explain and assist in the transfer of care between institutions.
