Counseling

Let's Talk Schedule

Concerned about a friend? Feeling anxious or down? Questions about counseling? Talk with a Counselor about your options at Let's Talk!

Informal, brief, free consultations with UHS mental health counselors

Let's Talk Drop-In Consultations are free and there's no paperwork involved.

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.

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.

Brief Individual and Couples Counseling

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.

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.
