U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

Multiple Ways to Access CAPS:

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 with you between Monday/Wednesday/Thursday 10am-6pm, Tuesday 12pm-6pm, and 11am-4pm on Fridays, during the Fall and Winter semesters.  The hours for Spring/Summer semesters are 10am-4pm Monday-Friday.
  • Scheduled appointment/Initial Consultation:  Most students prefer to schedule an Initial Consultation (IC) appointment.  Once the IC is scheduled, you will meet with a counselor to discuss your needs and the best treatment options available for you.   For more detailed information please review our Initial Consultation and Counseling Options webpage. 

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