Welcome to CAPS Individual Peer Counseling! Individual Peer Counseling (IPC) is designed to offer a new way to meet the needs of students across the University of Michigan. We are here to support student mental health and offer students a place to vent. Peer counselors are trained in active listening by professional staff here at CAPS.The IPC program connects students with someone of a similar age, interest and background who can serve as a resource or simply someone to “rant” to.
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.
