CAPS is Here for You!

CAPS and #WSUWeSupportU are dedicated to making sure Shockers are heard, seen and understood. We provide accessible mental health treatment, training, and education to empower the WSU community and promote personal and academic growth. Counselors are available in person or virtually and can be scheduled by calling 316-978-4792. Keep up with what our counselors are doing at @ShockersCAPS on Facebook, Instagram and X/Twitter.
