Counseling & Mental Health

CAPS staff

We serve the mental health care needs of students and the campus community from our location on the main campus. Most students know us as CAPS, or Counseling and Psychiatric Services.

Many students come to CAPS when they experience life events or academic pressures that leave them feeling anxious, confused, lonely, angry, depressed or overwhelmed. When those feelings persist for more than just a few days, it is often helpful to speak with an unbiased, objective professional. Some students come only for consultation about how to help a friend or family member. Any personal issue that is troubling a student may be discussed in counseling.
