Psychiatric Services

CAPS has three psychiatrists on staff who see students on both the Evanston and Chicago campuses. They provide a wide range of services including assessments, evaluations, and medication consultation. Students are only eligible for psychiatric services when they are in ongoing counseling at CAPS. Medication management without ongoing counseling at CAPS is not offered by CAPS psychiatrists.

If you are in need of a local psychiatrist to provide medication management services only or in need of longer-term psychiatric services, CAPS staff will assist you with a referral to a community provider.

Medication Consultation and Management
Psychiatric Evaluations

CAPS Psychiatrists can conduct evaluations for depression and/or anxiety. To schedule an evaluation, students must first meet with a CAPS counselor either by scheduling an Initial Assessment or dropping in during CAPS Same Day Access hours. Please note that CAPS Psychiatrists do not conduct ADHD evaluations.
