Services include short-term individual therapy, couples therapy, group counseling, mindfulness meditation, medication management and crisis intervention.

How You Can Help
Know the Signs of emotional distress
If your friend is showing signs of emotional distress, encourage them to get connected with a professional who can help. If you walk them over to CAPS, you are helping them take the first step and you will know they have been seen by a counselor.
If you or someone else is experiencing an emergency during non-business hours, call UPD (631-632-3333) or 911 for immediate assistance.
