U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

Due to the continuing COVID 19 global pandemic, CAPS continues to adjust our services based on University, State, and Federal guidelines to support the physical safety and health of our community.

CAPS is open, however our services remain mostly virtual with some in-person services available under public health informed conditions. Our staff is 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.
