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. Until further notice, CAPS is suspending all in person appointments and will provide remote support as needed and appropriate.

  • Current clients can call (973) 761-9500 or contact their counselor via email to determine whether remote support may be appropriate. 
  • Students who have never been to CAPS can receive support by calling (973) 761-9500. Your needs will be assessed via phone and we will provide support as needed and appropriate. 
  • If you or someone you know are experiencing a psychological emergency after business hours: Call (973) 761-9500 and speak directly via phone with a trained crisis counselor. Or 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.
