CAPS Services and COVID-19 Pandemic

UCSB is closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community, on and off campus. We are planning for several contingency scenarios and taking informed action to limit the spread of COVID-19 while ensuring the continuity of our service mission. CAPS will remain operational while adhering to safety measures to protect the health of the community.


Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) is committed to providing timely, culturally appropriate, and effective mental health services to our diverse UCSB student body, as well as professional consultation to faculty, staff, and families.

All registered students are eligible for services at CAPS. When help is needed in sorting out a personal concern, CAPS is a resource for learning new skills in building self-confidence, relating to others, reducing stress, solving problems, and identifying options.
