SPCS is currently closed to in-person meetings. However, beginning Monday, March 23rd we are continuing to offer remote therapy options ONLY to current clients active in our system who have had at least 1 FACE-TO-FACE (in person) appointment with an SPCS therapist this academic year. Per California laws, we can only provide remote therapy to students residing in the state of California and are unable to provide remote crisis interventions involving risk to self or others.  Current clients in our system were notified with this information Friday, March 13th or before. If you already have a therapist at SPCS, please communicate with them directly about your available options or email SPCS@chapman.edu.

Next, students NOT currently active in our SPCS scheduling system this academic year or are making first contact with SPCS may call in for (a) quick consultation should you be interested in outside therapy resources and/or to request to speak with a therapist if requiring some stress management strategies/tools or to consult on situational needs .  When you call the mainline during business hours, you will be routed to an available therapist who can offer some consultation and supportive thoughts- this is not a therapeutic relationship.  Should a therapist not be available, your information will be taken, and your call will be returned to you when a therapist becomes available. 

Additionally, you can contact our crisis after hours line at (714) 997-6778.  We also wish to remind you that TAO is the campus self-help service that is available to all students online at www.taoconnect.org

Requests for our most current outside resource lists for therapy or psychiatry can be requested by emailing SPCS@chapman.edu or calling (714) 997-6778 and providing an email address to attach them.

In this uncertain time, please know that we at SPCS care about you and are here to help.
