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


Through a university-wide, cross-functional network of professionals, the CARE Team will identify and respond to students needing academic, social or other university resources in order to help support them throughout their time at GW.

GW students now have access to expanded telehealth through our partnership with AcademicLiveCare (ALC) featuring additional counseling services, urgent medical care, therapy, and psychiatry appointments at no cost to full-time GW students*.

SHC services remain available 24/7/365, with both in-person and virtual appointments offered by calling (202) 994-5300. ALC is a separate service connecting students to a clinician during those times when the SHC might not be immediately available.

Students experiencing a medical or mental health emergency on campus should contact GW Emergency Services at (202) 994-6111 or off campus at 911.
