**CAPS is continuing to serve all enrolled students at this time via telehealth**

If you are interested in starting or continuing services via telehealth*, please call during business hours for more information. There will be limited staff in the office to answer questions by phone, so please make sure to leave a voicemail if you do not reach a live person. You can also reach us by email at counseling@ithaca.edu. Please be aware that the CAPS After-hours On-call service will be available when we are closed (5 PM-8:30 AM Monday-Friday and 24 hours a day Saturdays and Sundays).

All services will be conducted in compliance with state licensing requirements. Counselors will work with students to make sure services can be provided within existing state regulations. If your state does not allow for counselors from Ithaca College to offer services, CAPS will help you you find a counselor whilst home.

* - What is telehealth? Telehealth is like meeting with your therapist, but done through a private virtual connection via Zoom meeting or telephone.
