Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS)

Before coming to CAPS, please consider the following guidelines:

To reduce risk of transmitting COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), please refrain from entering CAPS if either of the following apply to you, and instead make contact by telephone at 919-660-1000:

  1. You have traveled internationally or domestically to any area with widespread, sustained and ongoing community spread of COVID-19 in the last 14 days (i.e., regions categorized as Level 2, 3 or 4 by the Center for Disease Control - CDC).
  2. You feel sick with fever, cough or difficulty breathing.
  • If you feel sick – with fever, cough or difficulty breathing – contact Student Health at 919-681-9355, select option 2 and ask to speak to a triage nurse about your health concerns.

By calling us at 919-660-1000, arrangements can be made by talking with a CAPS clinician who can assess your needs via telephone and connect you with appropriate services. 

If neither of the above descriptions apply to you and you are in Durham, please visit us and check in with our reception staff.
