UC Merced’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) promotes the academic and personal success of all students at UC Merced. CAPS is staffed by doctoral-level licensed psychologists who have expertise in working with college students. Staff members are sensitive to the diversity that is found on the UC Merced campus and strive to meet the needs of the campus community. All registered UC Merced students (undergraduate and graduate) may access CAPS services, which include confidential consultation, group therapy, walk-in crisis counseling, and short-term individual counseling. In addition, CAPS staff conduct outreach presentations across campus throughout the academic year on a variety of issues such as developing effective coping skills, how to identify and refer distressed students, and topics related to mental health of college students. Individual consultation is available to UC Merced students, faculty and staff who have concerns about a UC Merced student.
