Resources for Students, Faculty, Staff and Parents
Resources are available for self-help and self-access; essentially services that you can utilize without in-person assistance.
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) maintains a database of private practitioners in the community. Each therapist works autonomously and has full, separate, legal, therapeutic responsibility for their clients. We offer this database as a resource and this does not constitute endorsement of any of the listed treatment providers or facilities. Users assume responsibility for evaluating and selecting among the providers included in these listings.

Counseling often involves the disclosure of sensitive and personal information. Professional ethical codes and state laws consider the personal information discussed between a counselor and client to be strictly confidential. This means that the information that you share in counseling, including the fact that you have used our services, will not be disclosed to anyone (including university officials, faculty, staff, parents, or outside agencies) without your written permission.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide counseling services to UCF faculty and staff. If you are interested in receiving ongoing services for yourself, you may contact Horizon Health for assistance.
