Welcome to CAPS

CAPS' therapists are professionals specifically trained in college mental health.

In the wake of the mass shooting in Orlando on Sunday, June 12, 2016, CAPS firmly stands in solidarity with our LGBTQI, Latino, and Muslim students, faculty and staff, area communities, friends, family members, and those affected by this senseless act of violence. Our condolences are extended to those individuals and families impacted by this tragedy. Purdue students are encouraged to seek our services should they want to talk and process their reactions to this horrific event. It is our hope that our world works to end oppression in all forms and evolves into one that demonstrates and embraces inclusion and multi-cultural acceptance rather than to resolve differences through hate, discrimination, and violence.

First Time Visit?

Our new Initial Contact System begins with a walk-in consultation session. You will speak with a staff therapist after you have completed our initial paperwork. During the contact the therapist will assist you with immediate concerns and help you decide what you may need in order to address your ongoing concerns. This may involve services at CAPS, other resources on-campus, or services offered in the community depending upon your needs.
