CAPS Care Pathways

The Right Path For You

With CAPS Care Pathways, we match you with the individualized care you need. Our goal is to get you the right mental health support when you need it.

We believe:

  • No one should have to wait for mental health support. 
  • Everyone has different needs that require different types of care.
  • Collaborating is the key to reaching best outcomes for you. 

CAPS services are available to all enrolled University of Arizona students. Are you an Arizona Online or Distance Education student? Find out more about your health care and mental health support options.


Here's How CAPS Care Pathways Works:

Step 1

Call or use our virtual drop-in service to get started. One of our receptionists will get you connected with a counselor.

Step 2

You'll meet for about 30 minutes with a counselor about your concerns. 

Step 3

You and your counselor will create a Custom Care Plan. Your Care Plan may include a combination of individual counseling, groups and workshops, psychiatry, and/or online tools. 

Step 4

If your Care Plan involves services with a CAPS provider, an establishing care visit will be scheduled. You and your provider will then work together for continued care.*

*Sometimes, the best plan for a student involves other University resources or off-campus services. This can happen for a number of reasons, like insurance needs, the kind of services a student is looking for, or what would be the best match for a student's concerns. When that's the case, your counselor will discuss your options and help identify people to call to get started.
