Student resources

Students gain the three Cs

In order to make it to the top of your profession, you need great coaching to help you along the way. CHAMPS provides coaching to students through direct service, peer-to-peer mentoring, tutoring, group or individual counseling, and money management instruction.

Confidence is the byproduct of a lot of little successes. CHAMPS gives students the opportunity to build capacity with various opportunities develop public speaking skills, meet with policymakers, and plan activities on the Student Leadership Council.

Preparation for a career
Fully engaging in university life should afford many opportunities to students, and a career ranks high on that list. CHAMPS assists students in obtaining scholarships, internships, and work-study assignments; resume building, improving interviewing skills, obtaining a career mentor, and on-the-job experience in order to help with future employment and timely graduation.

  • WSU Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

    Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at Wayne State University provides FREE mental health evaluation and treatment for currently enrolled WSU students. 

    Confidentiality is strictly maintained. 
    The first step in accessing services is a triage which is usually handled on a drop-in basis. Students just need to come to our offices on the 5th floor of the Student Center Building on campus. Triages usually take about 45 minutes and are primarily to identify the presenting problems, degree of clinical urgency, and determine if CAPS is the right provider. Referrals are made for students who may be better helped elsewhere. Students will then be scheduled for an intake appointment with a CAPS counselor (not necessarily the same clinician who conducted the triage) who will conduct a more in-depth assessment and recommend a course of treatment.

    Most students are seen for individual therapy, however, group therapy, psychiatric care, psycho-educational workshops, couples counseling, and family therapy are also offered.

    All services at CAPS are provided at NO COST. For couples and family counseling, one of the participants must be a student. 

    Because of the high demand for mental health services, we maintain a waiting list at certain times during the year. However, it is our goal to see students as quickly as possible.
