U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

Crisis Services

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides free confidential psychological services for currently enrolled U of M undergraduate and graduate students.  These services include support for students experiencing a crisis or urgent situation. The following is a list of crisis services provided by CAPS.  Consultation with CAPS is available if help is needed in determining what service fits for your need. 

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 significant distress experienced over a period of time may suggest a more serious problem.   There are different levels of distress and these can be represented through a continuum.

For Online and Hybrid Program Students

While there can be many benefits to being an Online and/or Hybrid Program student, there can also be unique challenges including adjustment, time management, motivation, lonliness, and many more.  Students who are enrolled but are not able to access CAPS services on campus can still benefit from CAPS providing the following supports:

Support For Students Impacted By Campus Climate Concerns

As an agency, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) remains committed to the celebration and promotion of diversity in all its forms. We condemn oppression in every form and work to provide a safe, welcoming and affirming environment for all persons. Creating and sustaining a welcoming campus climate requires mutual respect for all. And that means discrimination and harassment are not acceptable at the University of Michigan. At CAPS, we remain committed to affirming inclusivity, value, and belonging of all students.

Men at Michigan

"Be a man" and "man up" are common phrases that are used in American culture and here at UM. For many men, these phrases imply that to qualify as a man, he must be tough, brave, knowledgeable, and show little to no emotion or pain. This places not only tremendous pressure on men to live up to those standards but also negates the unique qualities that make an individual his own kind of man.
