U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

Due to the COVID 19 global pandemic, CAPS has made adjustments to services based on recommendations from UM and the CDC to support the physical safety of our community. CAPS remains open, however our services are mostly virtual. CAPS staff remain actively engaged in supporting the mental health needs of UM students through tele-counseling, crisis support, and virtual outreach. We encourage all students to monitor UM updates HERE. We also strongly encourage all students to take steps to protect themselves from illness. 

Students can initiate clinical services at CAPS from wherever they are in the country.
