Counseling and Psychological Services

CAPS Personal Counseling Services can help students with issues related to adjusting to college and other psychological, interpersonal, and family problems. Individual sessions, group sessions and psychiatric services are available.

Culture of Caring

CAPS recognizes that the video release of Tyre Nichols' fatal encounter with five Memphis police officers may elicit a range of feelings for our students, and in particular, for our Black students. In addition to the potential for vicarious trauma, the video may also provoke grief, anger, fear, and sadness, all of which would be understandable.

If you are struggling with or feeling overwhelmed by any of these feelings, please reach out for support. To speak with a therapist at CAPS, please come to our office during business hours Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and request an urgent appointment. You may also access support by contacting MySSP 24/7.

CAPS Portal

KU CAPS is excited to announce that we are using a new “Patient Portal” that will help students have easy access to their appointments at CAPS!
CAPS Portal

The Portal allows students to check when their next appointments are scheduled, and to receive messages from their providers.  This is also where students will receive the link to access any services from CAPS conducted over Zoom for Healthcare.
