Counseling & Psychological Services

Counseling and Psychological Services (CaPS) provides a safe, confidential environment for students to talk about personal and academic concerns. All students currently enrolled at the Pittsburgh campus are eligible for services at CaPS at no additional cost to them, and all services are confidential.

We provide consultation services for faculty, staff, and family members who are concerned about a student or have questions. Call today to schedule a consultation.

Staff and faculty interested in mental health services for themselves should visit CMU’s EAP page.

CaPS is one of many support resources on campus available to help CMU students with a range of struggles. We can help you identify what resources are the best fit for your needs.

It's a sign of strength to ask for help.

Most will experience some psychological hardship that could benefit from professional support. Asking for help can result in a faster and more long-lasting recovery.

You are not alone.

No problem is too big or too small. CaPS serves approximately 15% of the student population, both Carnegie Mellon undergraduate and graduate students, each year.
