CAPS 24/7 Crisis Counseling(310) 825-0768
CAPS remains engaged with the campus, local, state, and national agencies as information related to COVID-19 continues to evolve.

CAPS will make every effort to continue to provide students newly seeking treatment with telehealth clinical care. Students who would like to initiate treatment, whether you are here on campus or are away, should call CAPS during normal business hours at 310-825-0768 to request a Tele-Triage Appointment. Students will be provided with a same-day zoom or telephone triage appointment, which will provide a brief screen and mental health assessment and options for appropriate care, including a virtual intake appointment with a CAPS clinician. Many students will be able to receive care this way. If this is not the best course of treatment, you will be offered clinical coordination support to assist you with other mental health care either locally or wherever you reside. CAPS is suspending session limits for both NON-SHIP and SHIP students until Fall 2020.
If you are scheduled for an appointment, but are unable to participate related to concerns about your health, you may also choose to cancel or reschedule your appointment. Although fees are typically charged for late cancellations and no shows, CAPS will be waiving fees, as appropriate.
For those engaged in Behavioral Health Services (BHS) treatment: BHS remains open and committed to continuing to meeting students' mental health needs, providing both therapy and psychiatry to those patients referred from CAPS and the hospital, as well as to patients who have already established care with BHS. BHS has also transitioned to primarily telehealth services. However, if absolutely necessary from a clinical standpoint, BHS will be able to provide face-to-face sessions. Please do not hesitate to call our SHIP Coordinators at 310-825-1452 to schedule telehealth appointments.
