I Will Change The Story

September is Suicide Awareness Month and CAPS invites you to share how you will "change the story" about suicide by writing a message on our board in Pierpont Commons on North Campus.

We will be using social media to post messages of hope, highlight our new suicide prevention webpage, suicide prevention articles, and more. Be sure to check out Facebook and/or instagram for more all this month! 


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.

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 8 different Schools and Colleges at UM.

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

The Final Stretch

More students than ever are seeking CAPS services. We are pleased to be a helpful resource to UM students. The staff members at CAPS are working hard to meet student needs. We are heading towards the end of the semester and a semester break, so we want to make sure you know about the services we provide at this time of the year.

With only a three weeks remaining in the semester, we are not scheduling new, ongoing counseling services. However, we will continue to support student needs with consultation appointments and other services.
