In the never-ending CAPS saga, we’ve received another update from the powers that be in the form of an all-campus email. Some highlights include:
- CAPS has received authorization to hire another full-time therapist in addition to the two full-time therapists have already been hired to replace the two full-time therapists who left.
- There is still no APRN/prescriber, though they “hope to have this position filled very soon”
- CAPS acknowledges that it is bad at connecting students to off-campus care (~understatement of the decade~), despite often claiming that students cannot continue using CAPS because they need “more intensive counseling and support than CAPS is able to provide.” To address this, they’re bringing in a consultant.
