With offices on the Denton, Dallas, and Houston campuses, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) assists students with a wide range of personal concerns. Professional psychologists provide individual, couples, crisis and group counseling; workshops and presentations; and other special programs designed to meet students’ needs. Psychiatric consultation is also available when deemed appropriate.

All counseling services are free and confidential to currently enrolled students. A student may request help directly or be referred by faculty or other interested persons. In most cases adequate time will be provided to assist students with their concerns, although the University cannot provide long-term individual counseling. Referral assistance is provided for those individuals needing more extensive counseling CAPS is able to provide. In Denton, students may visit CAPS in West Jones Hall or call 940-898-3801. In Dallas, students should call 214-689-6655 for an appointment. In Houston, students may visit CAPS on the second floor or call 713-794-2059.

CAPS also maintains a number of internet-based resources on its web site. These include on-line workshops students may access at any time, self-help handouts, links to other resources, and more information about CAPS. For more information, visit Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) .
