Michigan State University Counseling & Psychiatric Services (CAPS) provides a wide range of mental health services for students on campus, including and not limited to: screening/triage appointments, individual and group therapy, psychiatric services, outreach and multicultural engagement, clinical care coordination, intensive integrated clinical services, and hospitalization coordination and support.

This is an especially exciting time to join our staff. In August 2017, MSU’s Counseling Center officially joined with the Psychiatry unit from our Student Health Service to become Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS). CAPS moved into a larger, newly renovated space on the third floor of our Student Health Services building, where our offices now overlook beautiful brick buildings and tall, mature trees. The CAPS department is undergoing a significant period of growth at this time, including an expansion of our crisis response capacity and group therapy services. MSU is a large university with many resources and excellent benefits for employees.

We are a diverse and multidisciplinary staff who strives to use multicultural and collaborative approaches to provide quality care. Moreover, we work to connect each student with the most appropriate and available resources and services within CAPS.

This is a generalist position that will provide comprehensive psychotherapy services at CAPS in-person and via telemental health for students to include but not limited to: screening/triage, individual counseling, group services, and provide advocacy and crisis intervention services. As part of a multidisciplinary health team, they will communicate with other staff members to establish appropriate plans of care. This position may also provide supervision and training to Masters level trainees delivering psychotherapy and other related services. The Counselor will participate in staff meetings, multicultural seminars, integrated treatment teams, continuing education programs, and other organizational meetings. Moreover, this position will complete other duties as specified and assigned. We welcome applicants with experience with, and interest in providing general clinical services. Salary range begins at $61,650 and is commensurate with experience.
