Meet the CAPS Staff

CAPS Counseling Staff

The UHS CAPS Counseling staff is a multicultural group of professional counselors and psychiatrists. Counselors include psychologists, social workers, and advanced-level trainees. We try to accommodate students’ preferences regarding counseling gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.

Resources

There are many resources to help your emotional wellness. For advice about specific concerns, treatments or medications, please seek face-to-face consultation with a mental health professional.

Outreach and Workshop Requests

CAPS frequently does outreach to the campus for student groups, academic departments, and administrative units.

The goal of this outreach is to demystify counseling, educate the campus on mental health issues, and to help others know our counselors. Although staffing for outreach is limited, we do our best to accommodate requests.

Suicide Prevention

If You Are Suicidal

If you have taken steps to end your life, then please do one of the following so as to obtain immediate medical help:

Dial 9-1-1 from a landline or if you are off-campus

Dial UCPD Emergency at (510) 642-3333 from a cell phone if you are on or near campus
We ask that you do this so that we have a chance to help you with whatever leaves you feeling so overwhelmed that life is not worth living. We believe that you can be helped. We would like a chance to try to help you.

Satellite Offices

At times, it can be difficult for students to access counseling at the Tang center. In our effort to reach out to the campus, CAPS has expanded its presence on campus beyond the Tang Center.

Career Counseling Assessment and Library

The Career Counseling Library is a unique collection of books, files, directories and electronic resources staffed by a professional staff who will help you explore majors, careers and graduate programs.
