Welcome to CAPS Individual Peer Counseling! Individual Peer Counseling (IPC) is an initiative designed to offer a new way to meet the needs of students across the University of Michigan. IPC aims to support student mental health needs that may be more appropriate for individual peer to peer support. The program offers students the opportunity to meet with peers who are trained by the professional staff at UM’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).
Every day, CAPS is involved in activities and services that strengthen our campus to be supportive, engaged and, ultimately, connected around student mental health. Our work revolves around:
- clinical service delivery
- prevention and education
- mental health wellness
- research and data work
- training a new generation of professionals
- video about CAPS Services
Our work also involves information, services, and tools to help students, staff, faculty, and family members. Together, we can achieve a campus climate of mental ‘health’ where each student can engage thoughtfully as an active community member and to help their fellow students.

Counseling and Psychological Services is excited to share with you a new video conceived, planned, written, and acted by our 2016-17 CAPS Student Advisory Board. This video focuses on the variety of ways in which UM students may struggle with mental health and the multiple ways in which CAPS provides services. We are very proud of the work our SAB has accomplished this year and this video is one of the highlights.
