Counseling & Psychological Services works collaboratively with Wellness Services and Student Health Services to create a culture at UWF in which students strive for mental and physical health. Each department also works independently, providing unique contributions to the UWF campus community.
Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) offers counseling and therapy to help students address how to 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 the educational opportunities at the university.
CAPS is located in Building 960, Suite 200-A. It is most easily accessed through parking lots J and L. We are located between the tennis courts and the Fine and Performing Arts building.
Office Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday
Please NOTE: CAPS is closed when the UWF campus closes for winter break or for weather emergencies that result in a campus closure. CAPS remains open for emergency appointments during semester breaks when the UWF campus is still open for business.
Counseling and Psychological Services now offers an online screening for mood and anxiety disorders. This free screening is anonymous and available to all University of West Florida students. To get started, click the link below.CAPS Online Assessments
