  • Friday: 12pm-4:30pm

To see our Counselor on Duty for urgent/crisis needs, please call our Front Desk at 734-764-8312 or come into our Central Campus Office (4th Floor Michigan Union).  Staff will provide next steps which will include completing intake or basic information forms.  At that point, you'll be able to meet with a counselor as soon as possible.

For urgent/crisis needs after hours, please call CAPS After Hours.
