Resources for Students

Dear Titans,

We want you to know that we at Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) are devastated and our hearts break while we watch the anti-Black, anti-Asian, and anti-LGBTQ violence occur across our country.  We also want you to know that we are here for you. CAPS is here to listen, to be supportive, and to help you process your grief, trauma, anger and any other type of reaction or emotion that you might be experiencing. Your reactions and emotions are normal and valid, and we want the opportunity to support you.

Students interested in CAPS services can call the front desk at 657-278-3040 during business hours to schedule an appointment with a CAPS counselor. Our crisis line is available 24/7 by phone for students in a crisis situation. Students also have access to YOU@Fullerton (you.fullerton.eduOpens in new window ) where they can access a wealth of mental health resources.
