COUNSELING AND PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES
WE’RE STILL HERE FOR YOU!
UTEP has made modifications to university operations to help slow the spread of COVID-19 through the rest of the spring semester. Counseling and Psychological Services will continue to provide counseling services to students. To support UTEP in its efforts to protect students from COVID-19, CAPS will now deliver all services over the phone. To reduce wait times, CAPS will also be suspending its more traditional group and individual psychotherapy services and will be moving to an urgent care single session therapy model. If you would like to speak with a counselor, rather than coming to our main office, please call us at 915-747-5302 from 8:00am to 5:00pm, Monday-Friday. If you already have an appointment scheduled, or have questions about services during this time, feel free to give us a call.
On Call Crisis services: CAPS will continue to have On-Call counselors available over the phone for same day appointments. Please refer to our Crisis & Emergency page to learn what is considered a mental health crisis.
Our Miners Talk: Crisis Line will also remain in operation for after-hours services. After hours, please call 915.747.5302.
CAPS will suspend the following activities while UTEP is closed:
- Workshops: Mindful Based Stress Reduction Group, Understanding Myself and My Emotions (English and Spanish)
- Outreach Activities: Classroom presentations, QPR presentations, after-hour presentations and activities
- Individual and Group Psychotherapy: Although individual and group counseling sessions will be suspended, students who need to talk with a counselor are welcome to schedule a single session therapy appointment with our counselors over the phone. Call 915.747.5302 to set up an appointment.
- Psychotherapy Intakes: Although CAPS will not be taking on new clients for traditional individual and group therapy sessions during the closure, all students are welcome to make an appointment for a single therapy session with one of our counselors regardless of whether they are current or new clients to CAPS. Please call 915.747.5302 to schedule an appointment.
*Please note that due to the circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, there may be a delay in responding to any counseling, outreach, and any other related requests. We appreciate your understanding during this time.
