Counseling and Psychiatric Services(CAPS)

Many students come to CAPS when they experience life events or academic pressures that leave them feeling anxious, confused, lonely, angry, depressed or overwhelmed. When those feelings persist for more than just a few days, it is often helpful to speak with an unbiased, objective professional. Some students come only for consultation about how to help a friend or family member. Any personal issue that is troubling a student may be discussed in counseling.

Georgetown University’s Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) is dedicated to caring for the mental health and wellbeing of all members of the Georgetown community. Located directly across from MedStar hospital on the undergraduate main campus, their services are used by students struggling with a range of psychological, emotional, and cognitive impairments.
