The counselors have expertise and competency in working with underrepresented students on campus. All counselors work with students who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, and are managing the impact of living in a pandemic and remote learning.
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers short term counseling for personal, academic, and career issues.
There is no charge to get started, and all registered students can access services regardless of insurance.
Professional counselors can meet with students to talk about personal, academic and career issues including: adjusting to school, deciding on a career or major, dealing with family or relationships, sexual orientation and identity, coping with personal crises. Groups and workshops are also available on a variety of topics.
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.
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.
