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 are experiencing an emergency that cannot wait until our next day office hours, please call the HUP operator at 215-349-5490 and ask for the CAPS clinician on call.  Please note that this HUP operator number is only for emergencies.  If you are calling regarding an appointment, a prescription or other non-urgent issues, please call during regular office hours at 215-898-7021.
