Access Visit (Triage)

To access CAPS services on a first come, first serve basis, visit  

  • Health 2 office 10:00 am – 4:00 pm Monday through Friday.
  • AMG 119 at UH Sugar Land 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm on Mondays and 9:30 am – 12:30 pm on Wednesdays.
  • Or call 713-743-5454 to access us via telehealth. 

Access visits are free, brief assessment sessions intended to make sure you get connected to the right service.

What happens at an access visit?

At your visit, we will work with you to come up with a plan for change that capitalizes on your strengths and resources and tries to match you with a service that will most effectively address your needs. At CAPS, our philosophy is that life is the greatest teacher, and that therapy should always be a stepping stone and not a holding place.

How long does an access visit take?

Access visits are brief 15-30 minutes. A CAPS clinician will work with you to connect you with a service that will most effectively meet your needs. If CAPS services are not appropriate to your need, your clinician can help facilitate a referral to an outside service, if necessary.

Should I also call for an access visit if I am in a crisis?

Yes. If a CAPS clinician learns you are in a crisis, they are trained to provide crisis intervention and will work with you to make sure you are feeling calmer and better able to cope with your circumstances before the visit ends.
