Finding Professional Help

UNC Counseling and Psychological Services at Campus Health
James A. Taylor Building, 320 Emergency Room Drive

All students begin their work with CAPS through an initial assessment. These brief consultations occur without an appointment for students seeking counseling or psychological services for the first time at UNC – Chapel Hill. For walk-in services, visit anytime between 9:00 am – 12:00 pm or 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday at 9:30 am – 12:00 pm or 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Fridays.

During a walk-in assessment, students complete initial paperwork on a tablet and meet with one of our mental health professionals to discuss concerns they may have around managing academic and personal demands and to create a plan to help each student reach their goals.
