Counseling & Psychological Services

The YHC Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) Center consists of mental health professionals who help individuals adjust to academic and social pressures, plan their careers, understand themselves better, handle their concerns more efficiently, resolve internal or external conflicts, increase their self-esteem and gain more satisfaction from life. Counseling sessions range from one brief meeting to weekly 45-minute sessions. The CAPS Center maintains contact with various community mental health resources and arranges referrals when appropriate.

Some of the main services offered to students include...

  • Confidential individual, couples, family, and group therapy
  • Assistance in choosing a major
  • Interest and personality assessment
  • Presentations and resources on interviewing, study skills, time management, stress management and healthy lifestyle choices

Our resources are available to all students, and faculty and staff are encouraged to seek consultation from the CAPS Center concerning any students whom they believe may need assistance. The CAPS Center strives to assist students of all backgrounds and we work closely with various student organizations and other campus agencies to promote success among all students.
