Counseling and Psychological Services

CAPS Peer Educators 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.
