To All Members of the U-M Ann Arbor and Michigan Medicine Community:


All About Outreach: What We Do And Why We Do It

CAPS Community Engagement and Outreach is multi-faceted and comprehensive.  Simply, it's a way to reach all 46,000 of our University of Michigan students.  Together, we can all change the story about college student mental health.

What is outreach?

Outreach is about increasing college student mental health awareness through prevention, awareness, education and stigma reduction. Through outreach, CAPS staff are able to connect with the larger UM community and ultimately strengthen our “community of caring.” 


Embedded Model

In 2014, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) embarked on a new way of effectively and efficiently distributing mental health services for students across the schools and colleges by creating a community-based model - placing CAPS clinicians inside some of the schools and colleges, known as the embedded model.  CAPS counselors are now placed in 13 different Schools and Colleges at UM.

Find more information (including CAPS Embedded Staff, Confidentiality, and more) about the Embedded Model HERE.   


CAPS New Temporary Location

CAPS has moved!  While the Student Union is being renovated, you can find CAPS at the Tappan Auxiliary Building (609 Tappan Street).  

The staff and services are the same, just a temporary new location for the year.  

If you need additional help finding us, feel free to call 734-764-8312.


CAPS now on Mcard

A recent article on the UM Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion web page has featured CAPS efforts to increase mental health support on campus.  Every student receives an Mcard to serve as their UM ID card for their career here at U of M.  Now, the Mcard has CAPS After Hours Information on the back.
