Supporting Our Students

UGA is a global community of students, faculty and staff with ties to various regions of the world. CAPS recognizes the traumatic impact that armed conflict can have, even when we are not physically present or directly involved.
The conflict in Ukraine is undoubtedly impacting the mental health and well-being of our campus community.
CAPS extends our support to those affected, particularly those from Eastern Europe, those who have been impacted by war in the past, and those affiliated with the military.
We are here to help students navigate through these difficult times. Please contact us at 706-542-2273 and ask to speak to a crisis counselor, or view our array of services.
Employee Support: Employees can visit the Employee Assistance Program website or call 1-844-243-4440.
