rotunda with students on a clear, sunny dayWelcome!

UVA CAPS remains open during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, our services are virtual due to safety considerations for the community. Our current virtual services include telehealth (counseling, psychiatry and care management), crisis support, and virtual outreach.

The majority of CAPS services (including individual and group therapy) start with an initial phone assessment.

  • To schedule your initial phone assessment online, visit our Getting Started webpage.
  • If you have questions or prefer to schedule your initial assessment over the phone, contact our front desk staff Monday - Friday at (434) 243-5150 during regular SHW business hours.
  • Please note that only Initial Phone Assessments can be scheduled online. To schedule, reschedule or cancel all other CAPS appointments, please call 434-243-5150 or contact your CAPS provider directly.

The Department of Student Health and Wellness (SHW) respects, values, and celebrates all ages, abilities, gender identities or expressions, national origins, races, religions, sexes, and sexual orientations. More information here

CAPS is also available after-hours for emergencies. If you are in crisis and need to talk to someone immediately, call 434-243-5150. For life-threatening emergencies, please call 911.
