Student & Resident Programs

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

UNMC CAPS provides free, confidential counseling for all UNMC students. CAPS provides UNMC students with access to enhanced and expanded mental wellness services including individual counseling, couple’s counseling, substance use counseling and evaluation, support groups, and prevention education and outreach.

Take an anonymous brief online screening test for any of these common mental health problems: depression, anxiety, alcohol abuse, bipolar illness, post-traumatic stress, and eating disorders. These screening tests are confidential and only you will have access to your answers or the results. You will receive some specific recommendations and links to more information. Please contact our office directly if you decide to seek professional help.

Counseling needs may change over time, and students will continue to have access to mental health support throughout their student journey at UNMC. Please check our website for contact information and more details.
