CAPS Staff inside Tangeman University Center

At UC CAPS, we prioritize accessible and effective services that you can access when you need them. We take a collaborative, strengths-based approach to help you identify tools, resources, and strategies to meet your mental health goals. This might only take one meeting, or it might take a little more support. Either way, we’re here to help you on your Bearcat journey.

During business hours (M-F, 8:30am-5:00pm), call us at (513) 556-0648 to schedule a free appointment with a counselor. 

If you are in need of crisis support or after hours care, dial (513) 556-0648 and follow the prompts to be connected to care.

In Collaboration with 1n5 and Child Focus, the Division of Student Affairs-Health and Wellness is bringing the opportunity to be trained in the evidence-based suicide prevention training, Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR).

Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to understand mental health, recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis, and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. Gatekeepers can be anyone, but include parents, friends, students, neighbors, teachers, ministers, doctors, nurses, office supervisors, squad leaders, foremen, police officers, advisors, caseworkers, firefighters, and many others who are strategically positioned to recognize and refer someone at risk of suicide. 

As a QPR-trained Gatekeeper you will learn to:

  • Recognize the warning signs of suicide
  • Know how to offer hope
  • Know how to get help and save a life

The Student Wellness Center empowers students to make informed decisions regarding their health and wellness by providing evidence-based education, inclusive resources, and non-judgmental support. They also offer an extensive collection of resources and information about various health and wellness topics.

University Health Services is an outpatient facility offering comprehensive clinical services to the student population. All students enrolled at the university are eligible to use UHS. Mental health services—individual psychotherapy and psychiatric medication management—are available by appointment. Students must make an appointment to be treated at UHS.
