When you have problems with your thinking, feelings or moods, it can affect your confidence, relationships and academic success. CAPS offers confidential and expert resources when you experience such problems — plus strategies to create a healthier life.
Do you need behavioral health help?
College brings new pressures, environment and changing expectations that can overwhelm students. Do you feel overwhelmed by your classes or assignments? Are you depressed or anxious? Are you questioning your sexual identity? Is your use of drugs or alcohol use creating problems in your academic and personal life?
You’re not alone: In a national survey, more than half of all college students say they experience similar feelings and concerns.
The earlier you seek help, the greater the impact can be. And if you have a diagnosed mental health condition, our services can support you in your treatment and recovery.
Individual counseling is available at CAPS to current undergraduate or graduate students, at no charge. Individual counseling is a process that lets you work one-on-one with a trained mental health professional in a safe and caring environment, especially when confidentiality is a concern. Our approach supports self-healing and personal growth.
Medication services are intended for students who are interested in exploring medication as a treatment option, have not taken psychiatric medication previously, need a medication adjustment or seeking education about medications. CAPS medication providers do not prescribe stimulant medications (e.g. Adderall, Vyvanse), and they do not provide emergency services or refills. To access medication services a student must meet with a CAPS provider first.
