Consultation services are available to USF students, faculty, family members, roommates, friends, and staff when they have concerns about the psychological well-being of a USF student. USF students not residing in California or not currently enrolled in classes are able to consult with a CAPS therapist regarding mental health issues to get advice, resources, and referral information. The Dean of Students Office can also provide referrals for mental health services off campus. Contact CAPS at (415) 422-6352 or -6351 during business hours and ask to speak to one of our therapists.
Unless there is an emergency, CAPS will not reach out to students to offer an appointment. However, the Office of the Dean of Students will reach out to students of concern and encourage them to make an appointment with their office and/or with CAPS, as appropriate. Please alert the Dean of Students Office to students of concern at https://myusf.usfca.edu/dean-
Special consultation services for student veterans are available through a local Veterans Administration representative.
