Is CAPS "still open"?

We have a small number of CAPS staff on-site at Vaden Health Center from 8:30am to 5:00pm (PT), Monday through Friday. These staff members can meet in person with students who may be in crisis or whose needs cannot be met via telehealth or phone support. We ask all students to call CAPS (650-723-3785) before coming in person so we can discuss how best to meet their mental health needs while also protecting thetheir physical health and safety.
