CAPS services are free, voluntary, confidential and available to all Montclair State students. Though a brief wait for services might occur at busier times of the year, urgency of need is always taken into consideration when scheduling an appointment. Students are typically seen for an average of six individual sessions. In some cases, after an initial appointment, a referral will be made to an off-campus agency or private practitioner. This would most likely be the case if the student’s needs can be better met off-campus, or if longer-term services are deemed more appropriate. Additionally, we offer short-term consultations and referrals for faculty and staff.
In order to meet high demand for services, students with a prior history of individual treatment at CAPS who are returning for additional individual treatment may be assisted with the following other options for support:
- Group Counseling (weekly drop in and therapy groups)
- Consultation appointment
- Let’s Talk
- TAO Connect (Therapy Assistance Online)
