Referral Coordination Services

CAPS referral coordination services can help you connect with off-campus therapeutic and/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/live outside of the East Lansing area and students who have not previously received services through CAPS. It is also available to the spouse/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.
