Helping Students and the Cal Lutheran Community

Cal Lutheran faculty and staff are key contributors to student success. Counseling and Psychological Services is excited to work with you toward that goal. Our professional staff are available to collaborate with you regarding work-related or student-related issues. Consultation services are free and available to any academic department, staff or faculty member, or administrative unit.

CAPS is here to assist you in navigating situations where you would like additional assistance. You may also wish to involve the resources behind Cal Lutheran's CARE Team. The CARE Team serves the university and individual students by arranging, coordinating, monitoring, evaluating, and advocating for students in need of assistance. To do that, please email or contact any CARE Team member.
