An emotional support animal is a companion animal that provides therapeutic benefit to an individual with a mental or psychiatric disability. The animal is part of the treatment plan for a person who meets the definition of disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Housing Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The animal would address specific functional limitations to allow the person to live independently.
While we understand that an animal can be an important source of support during stressful times for many students, clinicians at CAPS do not provide letters for emotional support animals. We recognize that expertise is needed to assess whether a student meets the definition of a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Housing Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Additionally, a mental health professional with expertise in assessing whether companionship of the animal will effectively treat the disability is necessary.
