Talk to someone who cares.

At CAPS, we work with thousands of IU Bloomington students each year. While our well-trained staff are prepared to handle serious mental health crises, we also offer support for students who are looking for an opportunity to discuss problems with someone they can trust. Some of the problems we treat include: 

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship issues
  • Sexual assault
  • Feelings of inadequacy
  • Substance abuse
  • Difficulty adjusting to college

We offer individual, group, and couples counseling.

 Your treatment will depend on your situation. You may meet one-on-one with a counselor. Or you might join an ongoing therapy group where you can hear from people going through the same things you are. Most students find that four to five sessions are enough to make real improvements.

Treatment is confidential, it's affordable, and it works.

Two counseling sessions per semester are available at no charge when you pay your IU Health Fee. Additional visits are available at a low cost.

CAPS for Everyone
