As shared via email on June 28, DePaul has renamed University Counseling Services. Now University Counseling and Psychological Services, the department is staffed with six full-time clinicians dedicated to serving DePaul students' mental health needs. Two more staff members will join the team later this summer. The department name change reflects current practice in higher education and the community-based counseling nature of the services.
“We are happy to welcome our new clinicians to DePaul, and to be able to offer a full range of clinical mental health services to DePaul students," says Tow Yau, director of UCAPS. “We're also pleased to continue to offer 24/7 mental health services via phone, which many students have found quite helpful."
Registered, degree-seeking students enrolled for classes for the current quarter can talk to a therapist or schedule a brief screening and consultation appointment in the following ways:
Faculty and staff also can call UCAPS Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and select option two to refer students or to consult with a clinician. International students can call the support line and access will be established by mid-July. Check the website for updates.
