226 Student Services Center 1

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers a variety of services to students. Mental health professionals are available to all students, faculty, and staff seeking assistance. Psychology ethics and state law require that these services be confidential except under unusual, well-defined circumstances. Services include:

  • Crisis Intervention
  • Individual, group and couples counseling
  • LD, ADHD, personality and career assessment
  • Outreach
  • Consultation

All currently enrolled students at the University of Houston are eligible for comprehensive services at CAPS, most of which are free. If you are interested in counseling or assessment services, simply call CAPS at 713-743-5454 to arrange a free consultation appointment. Consultations are available throughout the week and can be scheduled at your convenience. The consultation is an opportunity for you and a CAPS clinician to determine what kinds of services will best meet your needs. An individual experiencing a crisis can come to CAPS during office hours and we will work you in with the first available therapist. In case of imminent danger, call 911. After hours crisis resources for students: MHMRA at 713-970-7000, Crisis Intervention of Houston at 713-468-5463 and UH Department of Public Safety at 713-743-3333.
