Psychological Services (CAPS)

Is committed to providing timely, culturally appropriate, and effective mental health services
to our diverse UCSB student body, as well as professional consultation to faculty, staff, and families. All registered students are eligible for services at CAPS.

When help is needed in sorting out a personal concern, CAPS is a resource for learning new skills in building self-confidence, relating to others, reducing stress, solving problems, and identifying options.


Through programs such as lunchtime meditation, dog therapy days, and rejuvenation stations, Health & Wellness supports the flourishing of students as they navigate the University experience for academic success and a fulfilling life.
