Counseling And Psychological Services (CAPS)
A Department of Student Health and Counseling Services
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers confidential psychological and psychiatric services to all registered students experiencing problems or concerns that affect their academic progress and sense of well-being. Staff members provide short-term individual counseling and group counseling for academic, personal and interpersonal concerns. Students often seek counseling to examine issues such as relationships, family problems, stress, cultural differences, assertiveness, self-esteem, intimacy, depression and anxiety. Additionally, staff can assist with educational concerns such as coping with university life, academic performance, test anxiety and reentry adjustment. Services for relationship issues are also offered to students and their partners. Psychiatry services are available to students by referral. Staff can provide assistance with off-campus referrals.
Confidentiality is strictly maintained in accordance with state laws and ethical standards. To use CAPS' services, students should contact the receptionist for information about making an appointment. If immediate assistance is needed, walk-in (urgent care) services are available Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. (PST); except Wednesday when CAPS opens at 9 a.m. (PST). After hours phone consultation is also available by calling the CAPS main number and following the instructions. In addition, peer counseling services are also available Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. (PST) through The House.
Students, faculty or staff who are concerned about a student or desire consultation or assistance in making a referral are encouraged to contact CAPS. Parents who are concerned about their UC Davis student's emotional reactions or behavior can also call CAPS to discuss their concerns.
