Location on a mapCounseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at Southern Utah University has recently moved from the student center to a larger, dedicated storefront space at 136 W. University Blvd (Center St.) to provide a more private atmosphere for individuals seeking assistance.

“We moved locations because the University felt this was the best longer-term plan for our center and it offers more privacy which is very nice,” said CAPS Director Dr. Curtis Hill.

CAPS provides a comfortable, inviting atmosphere where students can seek help and support while addressing stress and conflicts that may distract them from achieving their full potential. Staffed with experienced licensed mental health professionals including psychologists, social workers, and mental health counselors, CAPS work with students to reduce the interference of everyday stress and also treat more serious conditions. CAPS offers individual counseling, couples counseling, group counseling, biofeedback and workshops.

“Students are going to run into roadblocks that make focusing on school and their overall well being a challenge,” said Hill. “We provide a safe, confidential place where we can address those road blocks and collaborate together to find ways to remove those stresses.

Students who have questions about the services we provide or who would like to initiate counseling services are welcome to come by the office or to call at (435) 865-8621.
