Serving the mental health needs of FGCU students

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is the main source of mental health support and therapy services on campus.

Our center is fully accredited by the International Accreditation of Counseling Services, Inc. and most of our services are covered for students who are enrolled in the current semester and/or who have already paid health fees for the current academic term.  Unfortunately, we cannot provide services for students who are not enrolled in the current semester, alumni, faculty, or staff.  

CAPS is open and available to support our FGCU community.



Hours

CAPS is open 8:00am - 5:00pm, Monday-Friday. Summer hours are 8:30am-5:00pm, and closed for lunch 12:00pm-12:30pm, Monday-Friday. We are available by phone 239-590-7950 to schedule appointments, learn about our groups, or answer questions about our services.

We are located on the 3rd floor of the Student and Community Counseling Center, stop by our office to establish services,or email us at caps@fgcu.edu for more information.
