A Message From Our Team 

Dear Seton Hall Community, 

In accordance with CDC and state guidelines and recommendations, CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services) is taking precautions to keep our community healthy and safe. 

During the Spring 2021 semester, all CAPS services will be conducted remotely via secure telehealth platforms. 
In-person visits will only be considered in certain crisis situations, and only after an initial phone or video consultation with a CAPS provider.   

Access to CAPS Services During the Spring 2021 semester: 
  • Our hours of operation remain Monday-Friday from 8:45 a.m.– 4:45 p.m. 
  • Please call (973) 761-9500 to schedule an appointment for an initial assessment.
  • If you or someone you know are experiencing a psychological emergency please call 973-761-9500 24/7 to speak directly via phone with an on-call counselor. If you are having thoughts of killing yourself or someone else call 911 or go to your nearest hospital emergency room.

Maintaining Emotional Wellness During COVID-19 Crisis:

We understand that many of you may be feeling isolated as public health officials encourage us to distance ourselves from others and community events are canceled. We encourage you to continue to find ways to connect with your personal supports during this time. Emotional wellness is just as important as physical well-being, don't forget to take a moment for yourself.
