Counseling and Psychological Services

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) serves as the primary psychological health resource for the GW community. CAPS supports students' mental health and personal development by collaborating directly with students to overcome difficulties and challenges that may interfere with their academic, emotional and personal success.

Counseling Services

Students can access routine services at the Foggy Bottom location (Colonial Health Center, University Student Center, Ground Floor), where they can consult with a member of the clinical team. We have a robust team of clinicians who provide support services at GW.

Counseling availability and hours may change. Be sure to check the Colonial Health Center website for current availability. Email questions about services to [email protected].

Report a Concern

Report a concern through the CARE Network, an anonymous system for any member of the GW community to provide information about a student of concern. Through a university-wide, cross-functional network of professionals, the CARE Network will identify and respond to students needing academic, social or other university resources in order to help support them throughout their time at GW.
