U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

Multiple Ways to Access CAPS:

The following has been updated for the COVID-19 Pandemic. Students have different needs for different issues, so we have different ways to access CAPS, outlined below.

  • Urgent/Crisis Services:  There is no appointment needed for Urgent/Crisis services.  If you have an urgent need to meet with a counselor, our Counselor on Duty can meet (virtually) with you between 10am-4pm Monday-Friday.
  • Scheduled appointment/Initial Consultation:  Most students prefer to schedule an Initial Consultation (IC) appointment.  CAPS now has online scheduling!  Click HERE to begin counseling at CAPS.  Please email our Virtual Front Desk staff at caps-uofm@umich.edu with any questions.  Once the IC is scheduled, you will meet (virtually) with a counselor to discuss your needs and the best treatment options available for you.   For more detailed information please review our CAPS Clinical Services During COVID-19 webpage. 

The availability of our Initial Consultation appointments changes every day. That's why we update this page every day.
