CAPS Care Pathways



There's a Path for You 

Care Pathways is our philosophy of care. We believe: 

  • Mental health support comes in many forms
  • No one should have to wait for mental health support
  • Everyone deserves options for individualized care
  • Collaborating is the key to reaching the best outcomes for you

Whether you’re ready to start counseling or medication, have a question, seeking community, want to learn new skills, or just need to vent, there’s a path for you.

CAPS services are available to all enrolled University of Arizona students. Find out more about health care and mental health support options for Arizona Online or distance education students​​​.

The Care Pathways Way

Mental health support should fit your life. Whether you want to get started at CAPS, are going through a stressful time, or need help getting connected with other services, you have options. Select an appointment type that works for you, talk about your situation with a counselor, and create a custom plan together.  

This is your journey. We're here to support you along the way.

Get Started at CAPS in 3 Easy Steps

  1. Log in to PatientLink.
  2. Click "Schedule an Appointment" under Appointments.
  3. Choose a Counseling & Consultation Session appointment time that works for you.

During your CAPS Care Pathways Counseling & Consultation Session, you'll meet with a counselor for about 45 minutes to discuss your most pressing concerns, strategies you can try outside of the session, and the best Care Plan for you.

When the Best Plan Is Outside of CAPS, We'll Help You Get Connected

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 and goals. When that's the case, we'll help you identify people to call to get started. 

For off-campus referral support, schedule a free Resource & Referral appointment or talk with your CAPS provider about your options.

Let's Make Your Care Plan Together

Any of our services can be mixed and matched to create a mental health plan tailored to you. Explore our Care Pathways or meet with a counselor to create your Custom Care Plan.
