Clinic Policies

Supervision

ASPIRE is a training facility and requires our student service providers to be supervised in their work with clients. The work of all student service providers is closely overseen by faculty supervisors. The training environment allows students the opportunity to consult with and be supported by other students-in-training and supervisors in a way that benefits our clients through ensuring current practice standards and quality services. For training and supervision purposes, service providers are often observed or recorded during their work.

Cancellation Policy

If you are 15 or more minutes late for any scheduled appointment without notifying your service provider or the ASPIRE staff, we will request to reschedule the appointment and you will be charged for the session. If canceling a scheduled appointment becomes necessary, clients must notify their service provider or the ASPIRE Clinic at least 24 hours in advance. Clients who do not provide 24 hours notice of cancellation will be charged the full session fee.

Emergencies

The ASPIRE Clinic is not equipped as an emergency resource and we do not offer crisis services, walk-in appointments, or after-hours/on-call services. If you are experiencing an emergency, you are encouraged to contact local or national emergency resources.

If you need immediate assistance for a life-threatening health emergency or mental health crisis, please contact 911 or 1-800-715-4225.
