Each year, hundreds of students use the services of Counseling and Psychological Services. We provide a wide range of services that are free and confidential for students. The primary mission of the department is to support the personal, professional, and academic growth of Clayton State students. The staff is diverse, professional, warm and receptive to students who seek services.
CAPS provides services in person, or virtually using Microsoft Teams. This means students can have their therapy appointment from their residence hall, their apartment, or even from their parents' home.
All services are by appointment only, so please call or e-mail us prior to visiting our office.
To make an appointment, please call 678-466-5406 or use the e-mail request above.
