Mental Health Support Services

Undergraduate, Graduate and Professional Students

Duke's Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) supports students from all countries, backgrounds and belief systems. CAPS recognizes that racial profiling, xenophobia and Islamophobia have intensified recently and have had an impact on students’ mental health. If you are a student who would like to meet with a mental health professional, contact CAPS or stop by the student wellness center to schedule an appointment.

Faculty and Staff

Personal Assistance Services (PAS) is Duke's employee assistance program. If you are a Duke employee who would benefit from short-term counseling, contact PAS to schedule an appointment with a licensed professional.

If you are a faculty or staff member who is concerned about a student's health, you can report your concerns to DukeReach.

Support for Undocumented Students

If you are an undocumented student who needs guidance on navigating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, please visit Duke Student Affairs for more information and for assistance.

Travel Advice
