Do I need to schedule a brief initial assessment if I am only seeking psychiatry (medication) services?

2024-06-07T11:24:32-07:00

No. If you are sure that medication management is the only mental health support you are looking for, it’s OK to schedule a one-hour initial medication evaluation directly with one of the MCAPS psychiatrists. If you are seeking continued medication services with a psychiatrist you have previously worked with, you can schedule a 30-minute ongoing medication check appointment. However, if you are not sure whether you need medication or not, or if you think you may also want other mental health services or referrals, a brief initial assessment is appropriate. Please note that, due to the complexity of licensing laws and [...]

Do I have to schedule a brief initial assessment this year at MCAPS, even if I want to continue with a therapist I’ve seen before?

2024-06-07T11:23:58-07:00

Yes, every student seeking mental health support should first schedule an initial assessment. During that appointment, if the therapist determines the student’s presenting issues are appropriate for brief, goal-directed therapy, they can schedule a therapy intake appointment. In most cases, we can accommodate student requests for a particular therapist, although sometimes this may result in a longer wait for a therapy intake appointment.
