Taking care of your mental health is important during uncertain times. The campus is currently closed to most individuals, as recommended by the Governor of PA to help reduce the spread of Covid-19 in Pennsylvania. The CAPS office is currently closed, but staff are working remotely and can be reached by phone and email. As the University navigates the remainder of the semester, CAPS is committed to continuing to help students manage their mental health needs. Staff are available to consult with Cabrini students who had appointments already scheduled, or who are interested in services for the first time, or those who would like referrals for their local community.
If you would like to speak with a counselor or obtain referrals, please contact us at 610-902-8561 or Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please dial 911 or go to your nearest emergency department.

Counseling and Psychological Services
Counseling and Psychological Services facilitates students’ growth by focusing on values of self‑respect, respect for others, and self‑awareness. The office emphasizes healthy and adaptive choices, reaching one’s fullest potential, and functioning successfully within the global and local community.
If you have concerns about a student or yourself, please call, email, or stop by.
“I love my counselor. She is always welcoming and caring and keeps the conversation going. After leaving, I always feel better.”
“Counseling through Cabrini has helped me to grow as a student and as a person. You can easily tell how much all of the counselors care about the students here.”
“I know I would not still be at Cabrini if it was not for their help. I am extremely thankful to them for all of their hard work and compassion.”
“I was shy at first about seeking help. I wasn't entirely sure of how I was supposed to go about setting up appointments, but the staff was very friendly, helpful, and patient.”
Resources for Faculty/Staff
We offer workshops, training, and educational programs about stress management, how to help a troubled student, self-care, and many other topics. We are also happy to consult with faculty/staff if you have questions or concerns about a student.
