CAPS is pleased to be able to provide access to psychiatric services (i.e., medication management) for Eastern students who may benefit from medication. All students requesting an appointment with our prescriber must first be seen by a counselor for an “intake” appointment to discuss the reasons for their request and to fill out the required center’s paperwork. Students generally must be in counseling with one of the CAPS staff in order to access psychiatric services. Our prescriber is available for only a limited number of hours per week. We request that students receiving medication from a home physician have their records sent to CAPS for review prior to their first appointment with the prescriber. You may sign a release at CAPS requesting these records or you may sign a release at your physician’s office.
