Counseling And Psychological Services

The mission of the FAU Counseling And Psychological Services center is to provide FAU students with timely and effective mental health services that allow them to improve and maintain their mental well-being and therefore to meet their educational, personal, emotional, and psychological goals.



Psychological Impact of Recent Events

Our FAU Counseling and Psychological Services stands in solidarity with our Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities in light of the recent horrific attacks of terror and ongoing anti-Asian sentiments. Such acts of violence and hate have profound impacts on the well-being and mental health of our Owl community. We acknowledge the range of emotions that might emerge when exposed to violent events in the media and within our own personal lives. At CAPS we strive to be a center that is both welcoming and safe for international and domestic students of all backgrounds and identities. We stand with all individuals who have experienced racism, harassment, xenophobia, and discrimination.

We invite you to call us at 561-297-CAPS to make an appointment to speak to a clinician should you feel distressed and in need of support. We also have crisis support available by phone 24/7/365 which is accessed after-hours using the same CAPS phone line and following the prompts.
