Welcome to CAPS Peer Counseling! Peer Counseling is a brand-new initiative designed to offer a new way to meet the needs of students across the University of Michigan. Peer Counseling (PC) 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). The PC program connects students with someone of a similar age and lifestyle who can serve as a resource or simply someone to talk to. While Peer Counselors will keep all information private, PC is not a substitute for confidential therapy provided by a licensed mental health CAPS staff member.
