The UCF Counseling and Psychological Services (CAP) would like to express our care and compassion for those who were directly or vicariously impacted by the protests and violence that unfolded in Charlottesville, VA this weekend. In the aftermath of such events, it is normal to experience a range of feelings, such as sadness, fear, anger, helplessness, or guilt. It would also be more than understandable for our students who belong to marginalized and/or under-represented identity groups to be feeling particularly vulnerable. We encourage you to contact our office if you (or someone you know) would like additional support for coping with the unfortunate events that occurred in Charlottesville this weekend. Please call or stop and let the receptionist know you need to be seen today.
Our staff offers crisis intervention services during regular office hours. Students under 18 years of age can be seen on a limited basis without parental consent while they are in crisis. Check our Emergency Services page for more information. If you are a UCF student or are concerned about a UCF student, and need to talk to someone outside normal office hours, call 407-823-2811 ask push #5 on your phone to connect to a live clinician who can assist you in the moment. Be sure to inform the clinician that you are a UCF student or you are calling about a UCF student.
