We are happy to announce that Health, Wellness & Prevention Services (HWPS) and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) are now operating as one department -- Counseling and Wellness Services (CWS). HWPS and CAPS have merged to provide a comprehensive structure of wellness services to better serve EWU’s students.
We continue to be dedicated to adapting the way we serve EWU’s community needs and intend to integrate services, so they are more accessible to everyone. Please be aware that you may hear or see the former department names as we work to transition current services and information to Counseling and Wellness Services (CWS).
CAPS is open for telehealth services Monday to Friday. Please go to our FAQS section or call (509) 359-2366 if you would like more information.
Due to licensing laws, students must be located in the state of Washington for telehealth counseling services. Consultation and referral services are still available for students outside of Washington. Please call the center for more information.
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers brief counseling for students, focusing on solutions and resources.
Group counseling, online treatment resources, biofeedback, consultation, and outreach services are also available. CAPS provides assistance with referrals into the community for longer-term therapy.
Students must make appointments on their own behalf. If you are interested in scheduling an appointment or have some questions about the process, please check out Frequently Asked Questions under the "How do I make an appointment?" tab. There may be online paperwork to fill out before an appointment can be scheduled. Our phone number is 509.359.2366.
Our hours are 8:00 am to 5 pm from Monday through Friday; closed for lunch from 12 to 1 pm. Staff meetings are held most Thursday mornings.
Telehealth "walk-in" counseling services are available Monday - Tuesday & Thursday - Friday from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Telehealth counseling services for students at the Riverpoint campus are currently available by contacting the Cheney campus at 509.359.2366 during regular office hours.
