Referral Support

CAPS provides students assistance in connecting to therapists, psychiatrists, providers who conduct neuropsychological testing/ADHD evaluations, and other resources in the community. We make every effort to provide tailored recommendations based on students’ preferences and clinical needs.

If you require CAPS assistance in finding an off-campus referral please schedule a Chicago Referral and Resource Appointment. 

Common Reasons for Referrals

Referrals may be provided for the following reasons: 

  • Longer-term therapy 
  • Specialized care 
  • Higher level of care (more intensive treatment) 
  • Some medication management needs 
  • Neuropsychological testing/ADHD testing 
  • Limited student availability during CAPS business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30AM-5:00PM) or preference for evening or weekend hours 
  • Preference for working with a therapist with particular identities or areas of expertise 
  • Preference for connecting more rapidly to care in the community 
  • Upcoming graduation and would benefit from ongoing care 
  • Ineligible for therapy services at CAPS
