Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) provides services to enrolled students that help to maximize their academic and personal potential. CAPS offers therapy, free screenings, referrals to outside agencies, and crisis services to enrolled University of Michigan-Flint students. Students are encouraged to talk to counselors about their mental health concerns, relationship issues, family conflict, stress management, adjustment issues, and more. CAPS counselors are on call 24/7 to assist students with after-hour emergencies.
The services provided are confidential; CAPS counselors can’t share any information without written consent.
Workshops are available on topics such as stress management, time management, and healthy relationships. All services are provided at no charge to students.
CAPS counselors are available remotely during our normal business hours 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
To reach us, please call CAPS at (810) 762-3456 and leave a voicemail. The voice mail will also go to our email. Staff will check our voice mail/email regularly and respond. In the event of an after-hour crisis, please contact the Department of Public Safety (DPS) at (810) 762-3333 to reach the crisis counselor on duty, or you may dial 911.
Remote therapy encompasses delivering counseling and psychotherapy services via technology-assisted media. The technology includes but is not limited to telephone, video, internet, smartphone, tablet, PC desktop system, or other electronic means.
We understand that these can be emotionally trying times, but CAPS is committed to ensuring we stay connected for your mental health concerns.
