Counseling & Mental Health
The Georgetown University Law Center offers on- and off-campus resources to help students promote mental health in periods of need. In addition to the Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) Office, the Law Center retains an on-campus Sexual Assault and Relationship Violence Liaison and maintains strong relationships with a number of mental health resources around the DC area.

When students experience life events or academic pressures that leave them feeling anxious, confused, lonely, angry, depressed, or overwhelmed, it is often helpful to speak with a professional. Free and confidential evaluation services are available at the Law Center through CAPS, Georgetown University’s primary mental health resource for the Law students. Its mission is to collaborate directly with students in overcoming difficulties that may interfere with defining and accomplishing their educational, personal, and life goals. The Law Center CAPS clinical staff includes three psychologists and a part-time psychiatrist.
The Law Center CAPS office is located in Gewirz Center 110 (by appointment only/no walk-ins).
For appointments during the academic year, please use the CAPS First Appointment Request Form.
