Many students require ongoing support that is more specialized, intensive, or extensive than is available on campus. Ongoing long-term mental health care is not provided on campus but we can help you connect with a provider off campus.
There are three recommended ways to connect with an off-campus counselor for those who need care in the community:
- A CPS clinician can work with students to locate an off-campus provider that is maximally accessible, appropriate, and affordable with their health care plan.
- Students may also locate in network providers of their choice by calling the customer service number on the back of their health insurance card; by checking if their health insurance carrier's website may have a provider search feature; or SHIP students can go to the Anthem Blue Cross Find a Doctor website (to find therapists or psychiatrists, students should to select "Behavioral health " in "I'm looking for a" drop down menu).
- Psychology Today is another resource for locating behavioral health providers.
