Contacting Us in An Emergency

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis or emergency, please do not email us, but instead do one of the following in order to speak with a counselor immediately:

  • Call CAPS at 313-577-3398 during daytime hours or 313-577-9982 for After Hours 

Email Disclaimer

The staff at Counseling and Psychological Services realizes that you may want to ask a question or communicate with your counselor via email as a preferred way to exchange information; however, since emails are the electronic equivalent of post cards, it is possible that others can read or intercept this type of unencrypted material. While we at CAPS consider your communications private and do not disseminate information about you without your permission, Wayne State administration reserves the right to monitor email usage, which means that confidentiality of email correspondence cannot be guaranteed.

Privacy Policy

To protect your privacy, the CAPS staff will only communicate via e-mail with your permission, and will use it only to schedule and/or confirm appointments, or for other administrative matters. The counselors at CAPS will not provide counseling through e-mail or other electronic means. We cannot ensure that email sent to us will be received or responded to promptly. The best way to engage in counseling is to call CAPS at 313-577-3398 or come directly to the CAPS office at 552 Student Center Building during business hours.
