Student Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS)

UNLV Student Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) strives to facilitate and maintain the holistic well-being of UNLV students through three essential roles:

  1. Providing clinical services
  2. Providing education and outreach programing to the campus community
  3. Responding to crises that impact the campus community

To best meet the needs of the UNLV student population, CAPS utilizes a Stepped Care Model in order to utilize resources most effectively. All students are welcome to schedule an initial consultation to discuss concerns with a clinician who will recommend the most effective yet least-resource intensive intervention first.

If you are interested in CAPS services, please call CAPS at 702-895-3627 to schedule an initial consultation appointment. Visit the instruction page on how to check-in for an appointment using the WellnessView Portal.

Confidential Advocacy

Federal and state laws clearly recognize the need for a safe and confidential space for students to report experiences of power-based violence.

Confidential campus advocates are required to protect student’s privacy and confidential information, and therefore do not report anything a student says to the university, Title IX or campus police.

Exceptions to confidentiality include if the student reveals abuse or neglect of a child, including oneself if the student is under the age of 18, or of an elderly or disabled adult.

Confidential Care Advocates assist in the process of working through feelings, identifying needs, and making decisions.
