CAPS offers short term counseling for academic, career, and personal issues and also offers psychiatry services for circumstances when medication can help with counseling. 

There is no charge to get started, and all registered students can access services regardless of their insurance plan.

We are committed to supporting your academic success and self-development as a student at UC Berkeley.

Our highly skilled and culturally competent team is here to serve you with a wide range of programs. No problem is too big or too small.
