How to Make an Appointment

student on his phone

 There are two ways to make your initial phone consultation appointment for both the Evanston and Chicago campuses:

1. Call (847) 491-2151 to schedule an initial 15-20 minute phone consultation with a counselor.

2. Go online to schedule a phone consultation: online scheduling.

The counselor will collect some information from you and help connect you with the services most appropriate for your needs. You may be scheduled for a personalized care plan meeting at CAPS or connected with other resources on campus and/or in the community.

If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or go to your local emergency room. CAPS staff are available to students who are in crisis on a same-day basis for urgent situations that cannot wait for a phone consultation. Call us at 847-491-2151 to request a crisis appointment or walk over and ask the front desk staff to see the Crisis Counselor. For more information, visit What to do in an Emergency.
