Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is a department within the Division of Student Life and Development that helps undergraduate and graduate students cope more effectively with personal, mental health, and academic issues that arise in their lives. 

We offer free and confidential personal counseling and consultation to promote personal development and psychological well-being and assist students in defining and meeting personal, academic, and career objectives. 

We've designed our website to provide you with an overview of our services as well as resources that you may use at your convenience. These resources may be sufficient to address your needs or you may decide, upon reading them, that you have more questions or want additional assistance. If so, we are here to serve you.

JED Campus

SCSU was one of the first schools in the nation to receive a JedCampus Seal, meaning it has demonstrated a comprehensive approach to supporting students’ mental health on this campus, based on their analysis of an extensive survey we completed.

The JedCampus Seal is from The Jed Foundation, a leading national organization working to promote emotional health and prevent suicide in college students.
