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 for students who aren’t eligible for CAPS — CAPS can help find a therapist outside of the organization.

Mental Wellness Services

Telehealth Wellness Services
Starting August 16, 2021, students will have the option of accessing CAPS services through telehealth or in-person formats. All initial consultations will be conducted through telehealth.
As with all mental health wellness services, both telehealth and in-person services have risks and benefits. Please direct any questions about these risks to CAPS staff. Students must be in the state of Utah to receive ongoing telehealth services due to mental health licensing laws. Masks are strongly encouraged when you come for an in-person appointment. Learn more about CAPS telehealth wellness services guidelines.
