New WPO Therapy Option for Students
In an effort to increase mental health resources for Stanford students this year, CAPS is offering an additional therapy option for students via a new one-year pilot program called WPO.
Through this program students can receive up to 5 free virtual therapy sessions (or in-person sessions if wanted and available) with a therapist, paid for by CAPS. WPO clinicians can also provide single-session therapy right at the time of your call.
To access this new therapy service, call:
- Enrolled Stanford students currently located in the U.S.
- +1 984.239.2309
- Enrolled Stanford students currently located outside of the U.S.
When you call WPO, you will reach a clinical provider who will talk about what you need and then follow-up by email with a confirmed, matched referral for you with a confidential, private therapist in the community. If you want a same day session, WPO can also provide this right at the time of your call. WPO can also assist you in finding local providers for longer-term care on your insurance plan.
The WPO option is best for students who are seeking brief support for a specific issue (resolving a conflict, making a hard decision, coping with increase in stress) that could benefit from short-term work with a licensed therapist.
- If you have more complex or urgent needs, medication needs, or situations that you think would benefit from coordination with campus offices, please call CAPS (650.723.3785) to get connected for care.
- If you have any crisis needs that arise before your appointment with any provider (at CAPS, with WPO, or while waiting for the first appointment with a community clinician), please call CAPS (650.723.3785) 24/7 for assistance.
