UNC Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

All initial assessments at CAPS are available on a walk-in basis. Any student who walks in will be seen that same day.  

Hours of Operation and After-Hours Support

Any student wanting to get support or initiate services can walk in Monday-Friday between 9-12 and between 1-4. 

Any student who needs support after hours or on the weekends can call the main CAPS number at 919-966-3658 and speak directly with a therapist through our after-hours call.  

What to Do When a Student is in Crisis

If there is a student who presents in crisis to one of these spaces or is in need of more urgent care- the student may walk into CAPS to be evaluated either for a safety plan or hospitalization if that’s necessary.  

Campus Police could also be of help, but if it’s possible to have them go through CAPS, that may be a more gentle approach for the student. 

If this comes up, anyone can contact Avery Cook, LCSW, Co-Director UNC CAPS, directly on cell phone at 919-949-5000 to determine the best way to move forward.
