Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is a multidisciplinary student mental health center for the UCLA campus. In the broadest terms, the mission of CAPS is to promote academic achievement and reduce attrition and impediments to academic success. In carrying out this charge, its mission is three-fold and reflects the needs of a diverse campus community: (1) to promote positive personal growth and self-management by UCLA students; (2) to assist students in coping with increasingly complex and stressful emotional crises, trauma and mental health issues which may interfere with academic and personal functioning; and (3) to enhance the psychological well being and safety of the campus community.
Offers confidential counseling for all medical students. Short and long-term care are available from psychiatric residents, community psychiatrists, and psychologists, at either no or reduced cost. The initial counseling office is located off campus for confidentiality reasons, but is close enough to be convenient.

The CR Team is available to assist with a student in distress or in crisis. You do not need to struggle with a difficult situation alone. A referral to the CR Team would be warranted in situations where there are multiple concerns that may require a coordinated response from multiple campus departments such as Counseling and Psychological Services and UCLA Police Department. If the referring party wishes to seek only consultation, then the distressed student may never even become aware that the CR Team was consulted.
