CAPS Mission

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), the counseling center of the University of Pennsylvania, is available to all Penn students. CAPS offers clinical prevention and intervention, consultation and collaboration, and training and supervision with special attention to issues of diversity and multiculturalism.

By utilizing our service, students learn to manage personal challenges, psychological problems, and situational crises and develop strategies to cope with academic stress, and skills for life-long learning. CAPS fosters personal growth to enable Penn students to take full advantage of the academic and social environment at the University.
