For non-local or on-line CPS students, you may access mental health resources by:
- Asking your health care provider for referrals for psychotherapists or psychiatrists in your area. If you don't have health insurance, ask if the therapist offers a sliding fee scale or payment plan.
- Call your health insurance company for a list of psychotherapists or psychiatrists on their panel.
- Find out if your employer has an Employee Assistance Program (EAP). They provide a limited number of free, confidential sessions with licensed psychotherapists.
- Call your local mental health center for referrals.
If you have an emergency situation, go to the nearest emergency room, or dial 911.
