Counseling and Psychological Services

Tragedy in Las Vegas : UCF Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is deeply saddened by the tragedy in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 1, 2017. We recognize that this could be a very difficult time for many of our students who are from that area or know others who are from there as well. We want you to know if you or other students are experiencing distress related to this event, or if this event triggered memories of other tragedies in your life, CAPS is here to provide a safe and confidential environment to discuss this with a counselor. If support is needed, please contact us at 407-823-2811 or stop by during business hours.  After hours, press#5 for immediate assistance to talk to a therapist.  Also, you are encouraged to utilize our free on-line service TAO Self Help and our handouts for additional support.

CAPS Peer Educators

CAPS PEs, are a group of student volunteers from all years and majors. We are here to promote UCF’s Counseling and Psychological Services to students and campus departments. We are here to educate the campus community on mental fitness and stress reduction. CAPS Peer Educators help guide students to the available resources on campus to help them stay mentally fit. Our goal is to connect with students to help reduce the stigma of seeking mental health services.
