Counseling and Psychological Services

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) strives to help students achieve their academic, professional, and personal goals. Counselors can help students improve coping skills, strengthen personal relationships, navigate the college transition, recover from traumatic experiences, and engage in self-exploration. CAPS offers brief counseling for individuals and couples, group counseling, psychiatric services, referrals, crisis intervention, and workshops to eligible CSUF students. CAPS counselors are also available to consult with faculty and staff about concerns related to student mental health. In addition, CAPS is home to an APPIC-member doctoral internship program, offering training in professional psychology for graduate students in counseling and clinical psychology.
