Serving the mental health needs of FGCU students

Please visit our COVID-19 Information and Resources page.


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

Our center is fully accredited 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' doors will be open 8:00am - 5:00pm, Monday-Friday. We are available by phone 239-590-7950 to schedule appointments, learn about our groups, or ask questions about our services offered. 

Location

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.

Reminder:

  • When on campus, FGCU expects all students, employees, visitors and vendors to wear face masks at all times while indoors and when attending large, outdoor gatherings, even if you are vaccinated.
  • You must bring your Eagle ID with you for all appointments.
  • Missed appointments not canceled at least 24 hours ahead of the appointment time are subject to the $25 no-show fee.

In Crisis?

If you feel like you may be in danger of hurting yourself or others, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital. 
If you are an FGCU student in immediate distress outside of normal business hours (evenings, weekends, and holidays) who would like to speak with a mental health professional can call the CAPS help line: 239-745-EARS (3277).

Community Providers

Counseling and Psychological Services is proud to announce our Counseling Center Referral System.

Our online Community Provider Database allows you to input information that will assist you in finding a mental health provider suitable to your needs.  We have offered inclusion in this database to all local providers.  Other than confirming the good standing of their license to practice in the state of Florida, CAPS in no way endorses any specific provider and each provider is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of their listing.

This system will also allow counseling service providers in the community to join our growing network of associated providers that desire to work with FGCU students, faculty, and staff.
