Counseling and Psychological Services

Community Resources

All of the following community providers can be found within a short distance from Wesleyan. Most of them are an easy walk, although some are better reached by city bus. CAPS does not specifically recommend or endorse any particular community provider, but we are always happy to meet with students to discuss their needs and who may be a good match. We welcome student feedback about their experiences with community therapists and psychiatrists because we can utilize this information to provide better guidance for Wesleyan students in the future.
