Same Day Solution Sessions

Sometimes a student might be experiencing an urgent need requiring more immediate attention than a regularly scheduled appointment. Students can call CAPS for a Same Day Solution Session. This is a brief, solution-focused appointment on the same day to assist with reducing distress and creating a plan to address their concerns and needs.

Same-day Solution Sessions are available Monday through Friday at 2:00 and 2:30, are approximately 30 minutes long, and available both in-person and online. To schedule a Same Day Solution Session, please call CAPS at 478-301-2862.


If you are experiencing a mental health crisis/emergency and need to speak immediately with a CAPS therapist, please notify the CAPS front desk and you will be directed to the on-call therapist. After business hours, please call Mercer Police at 478-301-4357 for assistance.

The 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline also provides 24/7 confidential support for anyone in mental health distress. Call or text 988 for assistance.

Can I schedule a Same Day Solution Session if I’m not a client at CAPS?

Yes!! Same Day Solution Sessions are available to all Mercer University students on the Macon campus, the Law School, or any of the Medical Schools. When you call CAPS to schedule your Same Day Solution Session, you will be provided with instructions on the paperwork you will need to complete before meeting with a therapist.

Will I see my regular therapist for Same Day Solution Sessions?

Each therapist rotates the same day solutions sessions and therefore it is not always possible for you to see your regular therapist.
