Counseling and Psychological Services (ECAPS)
College is a time filled with many changes, transition, excitement, and challenges. Most students, at one time or another, experience various personal, emotional, and/or interpersonal concerns. During these times, it can help to reach out for support from friends, family, academic advisors, spiritual supports, and professional counseling. At ECAPS, we strive to help students build on strengths and address these concerns in ways that allow them to make the best of their college experience. We offer free and confidential individual, couples, and group counseling, as well as consultation and workshops.
The Center for Spiritual Life is Emerson’s inclusive, multifaith hub for religious and spiritual programming, support, and education. Our team of chaplains and student leaders work to foster a campus environment where faith traditions and spirituality can be practiced freely and wholly. Through one-on-one conversations, retreats, lunches, and meditative gatherings, we seek to provide spiritual nourishment to our campus.
The Student Care and Support Office receives referrals from students, faculty, staff, etc. about students of concern. The Office works with key partners on campus to provide support for those students with a goal of helping them succeed academically and personally.
