Services

CAPS offers individual therapy and appointments with a psychiatrist via telepsychology.

Video Sessions

CAPS offers FREE video sessions to all currently enrolled ULV students (undergraduate, graduate, CAPA, Law and ROC). Sessions are secure and confidential via CAPS Zoom Health. Students need internet access, a video camera on their device, and a private space for video sessions. We also recommend headphones with a microphone for added security. No sessions limits.

Phone Sessions

CAPS offers FREE phone sessions to all currently enrolled ULV students (undergraduate, graduate, CAPA, Law and ROC). Some students prefer phone to video sessions because they may not have access to a camera or internet.

Crisis Services

In the case of a life-threatening emergency, please call 9-1-1. If you, or a student you are concerned about, are in crisis that is not life-threatening, please call CAPS 909-448-4105 to speak with a CAPS staff member. CAPS will perform initial crisis consultation via tele-psychology (phone or video), and then determine next steps. Please do not report to CAPS in person.
