Mental Health/Self Care/Accessibility Resources @ UCLA

CAPS

CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services) is a resource for those students seeking counseling or therapy. More details can be found on their site — https://www.counseling.ucla.edu/. Here you can make an appointment to speak with a counselor or find more resources regarding mental health/self care. While CAPS is only open during regular business hours, a 24/7 crisis support line is always available by phone at 310–825–0768.

RISE

RISE (Resilience In Your Student Experience) is an extension of CAPS. Per their website, “The RISE Center is a holistic wellness hub that provides an array of programs, classes, trainings, and self-directed resources to foster and support resilience, connection, and well-being for our UCLA community. Services are free of cost to students and are led by a team of healing practitioners, mental health experts, prevention educators, wellness advisors, and student ambassadors.”
