Counseling and Psychological Services

As a student at MUSC, you encounter many new experiences which challenge your personal strengths and require new problem-solving skills. CAPS seeks to facilitate your growth and development by helping you to enhance your personal assets, increase your self-understanding, and develop more effective coping strategies. Through our services, we hope to help you gain the most from your experiences at MUSC.


The Way We Talk About Mental Health is Absurd

Emergencies and Urgent Care

For emergency and urgent care during office hours, please call the main CAPS number at 843-792-4930. We will make every effort to schedule a same-day appointment although it may not be with your regular provider. After hours, on weekends, and on holidays, please call the MUSC Paging Operator and ask for the Senior Psychiatry Resident on call or go to the nearest emergency room.


Your treatment at CAPS is confidential. Our medical records are not in EPIC or accessible through any other MUSC system. CAPS records can be accessed only by CAPS staff (or by Student Health Services staff if necessary for continuity of care).

Academics and Clinical Work

CAPS records are entirely separate from academic records. No CAPS patient's academic or clinical work would ever be supervised or evaluated by his/her CAPS provider. If such a situation were to arise, the CAPS provider would excuse him/herself from supervising using a non-specific reason.
