Psychological Services for Active Military and Veterans

Individual counseling sessions provide a confidential setting where military-affiliated students work with a counselor to address personal, social, and academic issues.  These may include:

  • Emotional concerns such as anxiety, depression, grief, and anger
  • Concerns associated with Deployment, Redeployment, and Re-enlistment
  • Relationship concerns (marital, friends, family)
  • Substance Abuse
  • Traumatic and Post Traumatic Stress
  • Decision Making/ Problem Solving

Call 993-2380 to schedule an appointment. 

The Drop-In Group (Wednesdays, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm, when classes are in session) provides a place where military affiliated students come to discuss concerns, receive information pertaining to psychological health, and connect with other military and veteran students. 

All services described above are housed within Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).  There is no cost and these services are confidential. CAPS offers crisis services during university office hours. For help when university offices are closed, contact University Police (993-4357) and they will assist you in contacting a CAPS on-call counselor when necessary. For more information about the services offered through CAPS call us at 992-2380 or visit us at http://caps.gmu.edu/.
