In the U.S., it is very common to use a counseling center as a place to get support and understanding. While the transition to UCLA can be an exciting challenge, it is normal that some of our students may be coping with personal, financial, health, and other stressors. The UCLA Counseling & Psychological Services Center (CAPS) is here to support your growth and development, and to help you to restore balance, build strength, gain emotional resiliency and increase your personal well-being.

CAPS staff is comprised of professionals from diverse cultures and backgrounds.  All clinicians are trained to provide culturally-sensitive treatment. CAPS clinicians speak a range of languages.
