Pat Walker Health Center’s Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) remains more committed than ever in supporting University of Arkansas students during these unprecedented and challenging times.
CAPS recognizes students may be struggling right now with anxiety, grief, sadness, confusion, loneliness and other difficulties in the midst of navigating a global health pandemic, financial hardships, increased social disconnection and continued racial injustice and unrest. Whatever the struggles — and regardless of how and/or where student learning takes place — CAPS is here to help.
CAPS is offering remote, tele-mental health clinical services and virtual programs in an effort to better serve our students and campus community.
Hours of Operation: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays
