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.
Interested in a friendly, informal conversation with a member of the staff at Counseling & Psychological Services? Just walk in for a confidential consultation! Speaking with a counselor consultant can help provide support, insight, solutions, and information about other resources.
Let’s Talk is a mental health program that provides drop-in consultations for University of Cincinnati students. It’s free, no appointment is necessary, and students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis.
Let's Talk is not a substitute for formal counseling and doesn’t constitute mental health treatment but the counseling consultants can listen to your specific problems and introduce you to what it’s like to speak to a member of our staff.
No topic is off limits. Common concerns include:
- academic performance
- family problems
- financial struggles
