All currently-registered UCF students who pay the health fee are entitled to an initial assessment to determine what the focus of therapy will be and what type of services are most appropriate for a particular problem. If you are under 18 years of age, parental consent will be needed to participate in an Initial Assessment and/or ongoing counseling.
Your first contact will be an initial assessment with a counselor who will determine the most appropriate services for you. In many instances, group counseling or life skills workshops are effective alternatives to individual counseling. At the end of the interview, a counselor will give recommendations regarding the best mode of treatment, which may mean a service CAPS provides or a referral to a resource on or off campus.
