USU students with access to a campus are eligible for CAPS mental health services. Most services are free to qualified students, confidential, and not part of your academic or university records. Our staff is committed to meeting the needs of individuals from diverse backgrounds, including differences of culture, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, religion, ability, and sexual orientation. We adhere to policies of equal opportunity and nondiscrimination.

How It Works

CAPS typically provides short-term, goal-oriented therapy (6-8 sessions). In general, individual therapy at CAPS is not recommended for students seeking and/or needing intensive or long-term treatment.

For students looking for intensive or long-term treatment — and students who aren't eligible for CAPS — USU has partnered with Thriving Campus, which is an easy-to-use database of mental health providers in Cache Valley and across the state. Visit or click here.

Students seeking services who are not enrolled in the summer but were enrolled in Spring 2022 and set to be enrolled in classes in Fall 2022 are eligible for crisis, group, and case management services.
