Welcome to Counseling and Psychological Services
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers counseling and therapy to help students manage, cope and grow with the stress associated with school and life. The primary goal of counseling is to help students develop the personal awareness and skills necessary to overcome problems and to develop in ways that will allow them to take advantage of educational opportunities at the University.
Mental health is a key part of your overall health. CAPS offers online screenings for mood and anxiety disorders as well as alcohol and marijuana use. These free screenings are anonymous and available to all UWF students.Online Screenings
