What is a CAPS Referral?

A CAPS referral is a referral that makes UA's Counseling and Psych Services (CAPS) more available for you to utilize. APASA is able to cover costs for a certain treatment of up to one or more sessions and will not show on the student's Bursar's account. A professional staff is willing and able to help initiate this process. 

APASA Embedded Counselor- Max Lim


I’m Maximilian Lim and I am APASA’s Embedded Counselor. I am a UArizona alumna with my Bachelor of Science in Psychology (class of 2017) and my Master of Arts in Counseling (class of 2020). While pursuing my master’s degree, I had the privilege of being APASA’s graduate assistant, hosting events to bring the community together and assisting students with their needs.
