Seattle University offers a variety of resources for the holistic health of students. A bundle of these resources are available through Seattle University?s department of Counseling & Psychological Services (sometimes appearing around campus on flyers as the acronym ?CAPS?). The department shares that they are ?committed to helping students meet the challenges of life during college, graduate and professional school by encouraging healthy personal choices and balanced perspectives.?

Services are available for a wide variety of reasons, including depression and anxiety; life crises; identity issues; relationship concerns; difficulty with loss or other life transitions; sexual choices and concerns; problems related to alcohol or drug use, as well as many other issues of concern. They treat each student with sensitivity, providing affirmative therapy that values diversity and respects the individual.

The department's professional team of licensed social workers, psychologists, and graduate trainees, provide time-limited group and individual psychotherapy for students and referral services for those requiring specialized or longer term care. These services are provided free of charge to students enrolled in classes.

All clinical services are confidential: no information is released without the student's consent, unless required by law. Additionally, the staff provides consultation, crisis intervention and educational workshops to the campus.
