Services

CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services) at the Wellness Center offers confidential individual and group counseling to students covering a variety of issues that may interfere with academic progress and holistic wellness. CAPS provides crisis intervention on as-needed basis, as well as outreach, consultation, and referral services.  

Services are confidential and free of charge to all currently enrolled students except those in the Master of Arts in Counseling Program.  To avoid dual relationships that may interfere with the counseling process, Master of Arts in Counseling students are encouraged to click here for counseling resources off-campus, and to check in with their faculty advisor for additional information on counseling options.

CAPS is a clinical training site for practicum and internship students enrolled in a graduate counseling program.  Practicum and internship students are supervised throughout their clinical experience and have a particular interest in working with college students.

Screenings

The Wellness Center has partnered with Screenings for Mental Health to offer anonymous, confidential mental health screenings.  Click here to visit the anonymous mental health screening home page, where you’ll find links to screenings for common mental health concerns, details about confidentiality, and more information on the screening process.

This service is for your own personal use, to see if you might benefit from talking to a mental health professional.  It does not diagnose mental illness, but it can offer general resources and recommendations based on your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.  If you would like to discuss your screening results or any other mental health concerns confidentially, please call the Wellness Center at 407-628-6340 to make an appointment with a counselor.

Consultation and Referral

If you are worried about a friend who may need help, or if you are a parent worried about your child who is a student at Rollins, we will consult with you on how you might support your friend or family member, and, if necessary or advisable, how to try to make a referral to our office or another provider. The rules of confidentiality will apply.

There are a number of ways you can make a referral should you believe a student would benefit from talking with a counselor:

Tell the student what you know about services at CAPS:

     Counseling is free and available to all currently enrolled Rollins students

     Sessions are confidential

     Counselors are available to discuss any issue and/or provide referrals to other professionals in the community

Suggest that the student take a look at our Web site for information.

If the student is hesitant, offer to make the call with the student to set up an appointment.  The student will be required to agree to the appointment and provide contact information to our front desk staff.

Offer to walk in with the student at the time of his or her appointment.

If you have ever benefited from talking with a counselor and are comfortable with such self-disclosure, share you experience with the student.

It may also be helpful to provide the student with the CAPS contact number (407-628-6340) and let them know that we are located in the Rollins Wellness Center at 118 W. Fairbanks Avenue.

If you believe the situation is urgent:

Suggest that the student accompany you to our office - no appointment is necessary in a mental health emergency.

Follow up with the student and suggest alternative treatment in the community if they are reluctant to seek services at CAPS.  Click here for a list of community resources.

Call to consult with one of our counselors at 407-628-6340 or visit us at 118 W. Fairbanks Avenue.

Off-Campus Referral

Students may prefer to seek counseling services off–campus or require services outside the scope of what we offer at CAPS. We can provide you with more information regarding your options and assist you in finding a provider who accepts your health insurance plan. If you would like assistance with a referral to an outside mental health provider, agency, or treatment program, please call our office at 407-628-6340 to schedule a consultation appointment with a counselor.
