Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is dedicated to addressing the mental health needs of Eastern Michigan University students.

*You must be enrolled half-time to receive services.
Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) joins the rest of the EMU community in expressing our grief, sorrow and compassion to all of those who have been impacted by the race-based tragedies that have been occurring across our nation. We condemn the persistent violence against our Black community members. While these tragedies can be painful to process for all of us, we recognize that they are uniquely traumatic to members of our Black and African-American communities.
In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing trauma, it is normal to experience a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness or guilt. We encourage you to reach out to people you can trust and who can support you in coping with reactions to these recent events. For some, talking about the event, acknowledging feelings, or focusing on helping others can assist with reducing the negative emotional impact of violence. We encourage you to contact our office at [email protected] or call 734.487.1118 if you would like support with coping and healing.
*Update* CAPS continues to adapt to changes as a result of Covid-19. During the summer, CAPS will be seeing clients in-person and via telehealth. Client's can be seen via telehealth Monday-Friday. Our office will be open for in person appointments Tuesday-Thursday.
