U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

Finding Your Community Provider (Database Included)

Most students who come into CAPS receive clinical services in the form of individual counseling, group counseling, or workshops, but sometimes CAPS will collaborate with a student to receive their counseling in the community.  This decision may happen in the Initial Consultation, ongoing counseling appointments, or through work with CAPS Case Management staff.  In the event that CAPS supports you with finding counseling in the community, you might be wondering, what do I do next.  Thats a great question and you've come to the right place for answers. 

Helping a Student in Distress

Students dealing with personal concerns and in distress typically show some outward signs that they are struggling in some way. All of us experience life’s “ups and down,” but ongoing and/or intensified distress may suggest a more serious concern. There are different levels of distress and these can be represented through a continuum. How you go about helping a student will depend on several factors such as: their level of distress, the nature of your relationship, the type of setting you are in, and your comfort level.

SilverCloud Interactive Mental Health Resource

While so many students are in remote locations (in Ann Arbor or elsewhere in the country and world), in different time zones, etc, CAPS would like to highlight SilverCloud as a helpful resource. This resource can be accessed 24/7 and can be used whenever you want, have the time, at your own pace, etc. We highly recommend use of this as we start our Sp/Sum terms online.
