Counseling, Alcohol/Drug Assistance and Psychiatric Services (CAPS)

CAPS is dedicated to serving the students and faculty at Rutgers - New Brunswick by providing comprehensive mental health services to the campus community. CAPS strives to provide services that are designed to help students reach and maintain a positive, productive university experience, ranging from various counseling services, educational and preventive initiatives, training programs, outreach and consultation activities, and to provide guidance on how to contribute to a caring healthy community. As specialists in working with undergraduate and graduate students, we can help students address whatever it is that may be of concern to them.

Student Assistance Facilitator (SAF)

The purpose of the Student Assistance Facilitator (SAF) is to help students who may be suffering from substance abuse and/or mental health problems to obtain appropriate and effective treatment as early as possible. Self-referrals as well as referrals from all members of the RWJMS community are encouraged. In addition, the SAF recognizes the importance of confidential and early intervention in helping with full recovery. The SAF is available to answer questions, to provide information, or to suggest referral.

Assistance in the Event of a Sexual Assault

Nationwide, acts of sexual violence are under-reported; victims of sexual assault are more like to suffer academically, and from depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, alcohol and drug abuse, and to contemplate suicide. It is important that the Rutgers Biomedical Heatlh Sciences community have information and resources readily available to address these issues.  The University Office of Academic Affairs, in consultation with UBHC, the Office of Public Safety and U.H. Emergency Department has developed a document titled, “If You’re the Victim of Sexual Assault,” is available here.
