Referral Policy, Effective September 2019

CAPS is grateful for the partnership and collaboration in treating the Michigan State University student population. Following is information regarding the new policy by which CAPS will be accepting referrals.

Any MSU student seeking mental health services as a new client will begin the process with an Advanced Access Screening appointment at Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS), a department within Student Health and Wellness.

Therefore, effective immediately, to refer a student for mental health services, please ask the patient to call our office at 517-355-8270 to ask for an “Advanced Access Screening” appointment. Our goal is to assess the needs of each student in order to connect them with appropriate and available services and resources, including:

  • Individual, Couples and Group Counseling
  • Psychiatric Medication Management (including the transfer of care of psychiatric prescriptions from either a Psychiatrist or Medical Provider)
  • Crisis Stabilization Services
  • Clinical Coordination/Care Management

Please inform us if you are only referring for a particular service (e.g., medication in instances where you are a counselor/psychologist and plan to continue to provide ongoing therapy). We also welcome students to request mental health clinicians or providers based on individual preferences and identities, as we are able. For a listing of our providers, please visit www.caps.msu.edu

If you are a current clinical provider of an MSU student that wishes to transfer their mental health care to MSU’s Student Health and Wellness Services, we welcome receiving all relevant clinical treatment information about your patient or client. Your treatment information will help CAPS clinicians make a collaborative treatment recommendation for connecting the student to the care they need. Records should be faxed directly to the CAPS fax line at 517.353.5582. Please note this fax number has changed.

Please be advised, if you are a prescribing provider your records must be reviewed by a CAPS clinician before a student will be scheduled for a medical mental health appointment. Student Health and Wellness Services will not be taking over any prescriptions until a student is scheduled and evaluated by one of our prescribing providers. If you have any questions about our new process for MSU students to access mental health services, please contact CAPS reception at 517.355.8270.

Following is a list of additional MSU Departments, Units, and Programs that support students, faculty, and staff on campus and in the community.
