Thanks for visiting CAPS

The Penn State Center for Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is a multidisciplinary counseling center supporting the continuum of Penn State students' mental health and wellness needs.  We utilize a diverse array of programs to empower students in identifying concerns and connecting them to the best next step in their journey.  Everyone can benefit from support at some point during their collegiate career and CAPS is a great site to explore for that assistance. Learn about our virtual library, wellness services, referral options, Life Hack Kits and clinical services.  We love what we do and are grateful to serve in this vital campus role.  As a group of specialists in working with undergraduate and graduate students, the staff is available to help you address your needs in an affirming, safe, and supportive environment. 


Best wishes in all your endeavors while a student at Penn State!
