Welcome to CAPS
CAPS offers confidential free professional mental health services to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students at Penn.
Our goal is to assist students in their adjustment to university life and help them take full advantage of the academic and social environment at Penn. Students can learn to manage personal problems and situational crises effectively, learn strategies to cope with academic stress, and develop self awareness, personal responsibility, and skills for life-long learning.
If you would like an urgent consultation with CAPS staff after hours during the week or on weekends, please call 215-349-5490. Ask for the CAPS clinician on call. The UPHS operator will connect you to a CAPS staff member in a timely manner. This clinician will provide phone consultation to help you assess your problem and make plans for appropriate next steps.
