What We Do
Counseling & Psych Services: In Service of Student Wellness and Success
Our mission at Counseling & Psych services (CAPS) is to help students thrive personally and academically. To do this, we offer direct clinical services to enrolled students, consultation with concerned family, friends, faculty, and staff in service of students, and outreach and education to the UA community.
We are proud to be a part of the award-winning Campus Health Service, and challenge ourselves to explore cutting-edge and evidence-based treatments that meet the unique and ever-evolving needs of university students.
At CAPS, enrolled students can receive mental health care, including
- brief therapy
- psychiatric care
- group treatment
- sexual assault and trauma sevices through Oasis
- specialized care for the LGBTQIA and allied community in partnership with LGBTQ Affairs
- eating disorder, disordered eating, and body image treatment and support
- support for veterans

Outreach and Education
CAPS offers training, education, and outreach to the UA community. We regularly participate in UA events and partner with campus resources like the UA Think Tank and the Women and Gender Resource Center to provide psychoeducation and mental health screenings. CAPS professionals and students involved in the Mindful Ambassadors program also provide psychoeducational workshops and presentations across campus.
If you'd like to request a CAPS presentation or have a CAPS member present at your event, call us at (520) 621-3334 and speak with our outreach coordinator about your options. Please note that events generally need to be scheduled at least 4 weeks in advance.
