Thurgood Marshall College and UC San Diego offer multiple services and programs to help students manage all aspects of personal wellness.
Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) provides individual, couple, group, and family psychotherapy to registered UC San Diego students. You may seek counseling for a variety of issues, such as:
- adjusting to college
- sexual identity issues
- relationship problems
- stress management
- eating disorders
- test anxiety
- alcohol or substance use
Online, you can find a list of CAPS staff members containing information about education, clinical specialties, affiliations, and office locations. When making an appointment, you may request a specific therapist on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or location, but it may mean a longer wait until an appointment becomes available.
UC San Diego Wellness Center is a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to student wellness providing services that address the physical, intellectual, spiritual and emotional needs of students. For mor information, visit the UC San Diego Wellness Center website.
