Welcome to CAPS!

Academic Year HOURS 2023:

Starting 8/14/23,  Hours for CAPS will be:

Monday-Friday: 8:30am-5:00pm

 At close of business on Friday (5:00pm), the "After-Hours" Live Counselor will be available by calling 607-274-3136 and selecting Option #5.  Emails or phone messages sent after 5pm on Friday will be responded to on the following Monday after opening. 

In an emergency, please contact the IC Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management at 607-274-3333.

Learn about our hybrid of virtual and in-person services or to make an appointment call 607-274-3136 during business hours (8:30am-5:00pm, M-F). 

Depending on individual assessment, professional best practices, and CAPS’ Scope of Practice, we can recommend any number of services represented on the Support Wheel. CAPS' adaptation of Stepped Care 2.0 allows for flexibility, respects that needs change over time, and minimizes the overall wait-time for services.
