Welcome to Counseling and Psychological Services!
In the wake of the tragedy in Charleston, South Carolina, the CAPS staff would like to reach out in solidarity. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who were killed, and with all those who are grieving during this time. The CAPS staff is available to meet with any students who are upset by these events and would like to speak with a therapist. Students are welcome to call CAPS (209-946-2315, extension 2) or walk over to the Cowell Wellness Center to make an appointment.
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at the University of the Pacific provides assistance to students who are encountering depression, anxiety, adjustment problems and/or who are experiencing emotional distress. Our therapists are trained to aid students in building self-confidence, making healthy choices, choosing assertive communication, relating to others, developing/solidifying identity, and working with more serious mental health concerns. In addition, CAPS offers crisis consultation, and outreach programming.
