UC CAPS provides all actively enrolled, matriculating students with four free counseling appointments per semester. This includes an initial 50 minute assessment and three follow-up individual counseling appointments. Appointments thereafter are billed according to our fee structure (fee structure). In order to make services widely available to the entire UC student body, CAPS has implemented a 10-session, brief-counseling model per academic year. Students who are in need of more intensive, frequent or long-term counseling or specialized services are supported in finding outside care.
Brief Screening and Consultation
This is the first step for most UC students seeking services at CAPS. The BSC (15 minutes) is conducted by phone. The counselor will ask a series of questions regarding your situation and concerns, and discuss various options that may be appropriate for you. These include: scheduling an intake interview with a counselor or referring you to one of our group therapy programs, another UC Office/Service, or a community mental health provider. There is no charge for the BSC.
