Counseling and Psychological Services
University of Hartford’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides a range of short-term counseling and psychological services to the University community. Services are available to full-time undergraduate students at no additional cost. Part-time and graduate students may utilize CAPS services for a nominal fee.
Our services include individual, group, and couples counseling. Of course, there are times when a student's service requests or treatment needs extend beyond that of which CAPS can offer. In such instances, CAPS counselors will assist students in identifying referrals to off-campus providers or programs that can provide these services. CAPS does not provide court-mandated or court-ordered treatment or assessment.
CAPS staff also provides training, outreach, and consultation to University faculty and staff.
It's very important to care for your mental health during this challenging time. CAPS is here for support. We will maintain regular business hours (Monday through Friay, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.) until June 12, 2020 when the office closes for the summer, however, we will be available remotely until further notice.
If you would like to speak with a therapist, please leave a voicemail at CAPS 860.768.4482 or email CAPS Director, Dr. Jeff Burda, firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions from faculty, staff, or others should be directed to Dr. Burda.
If this is an emergency on campus, please contact Public Safety at 860.768.7777.
If this is an off-campus emergency requiring immediate assistance, please call 911 or go to your nearest ER.
