Student Counseling and Psychological Services (S-CAPS)

Student Counseling and Psychological Services complements the academic experience of the student body by facilitating healthy personal, social, and intellectual development of FDU’s students. Life circumstances, skills deficits, and/or mental health problems may at times interfere with a student’s ability to successfully achieve important academic and life goals. S-CAPS’ unique environment and role allow them to help students identify their problems, manage their emotions, learn new problem-solving skills, and successfully meet the academic and social challenges of university life. This is accomplished by offering:

  • counseling, diagnostic evaluation, psychotherapy, advocacy, and mental health referrals
  • developmental, preventative, and remedial counseling to university students
  • consultation, educational, and training services to the university community
  • experiential workshops on essential life skills (i.e., assertiveness, stress management, sleep, hygiene)

  • how to deal with an illness or injury
  • how to recognize when they need to seek help for a health problem
  • how to become an effective health care consumer so that they can make informed decisions
  • where to get information to assist them in making informed health care decisions
