Student Counseling and Psychological Services (UNLV CAPS - 895-3627)
NSC has partnered with UNLV CAPS to provide individual and/or group therapy for NSC students. UNLV CAPS also has a full-time psychiatrist on staff to provide medication management of symptoms if deemed clinically appropriate. There is no direct cost to students for these services. CAPS psychologists and counselors specialize in dealing with the problems commonly experienced by college students of all ages and collaborate with the student to increase self-understanding and to develop the skills necessary to overcome personal concerns. CAPS is located in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center (SRWC), room 1500, on the UNLV campus. Students should clearly identify themselves as NSC students when contacting CAPS.
Students should be aware that professional ethics codes and state laws consider the personal information discussed in counseling to be strictly confidential. All information gathered in counseling, including the fact that the student has accessed services with CAPS, is held in strict confidence. No information is released to Nevada State College officials, faculty members, parents, or outside agencies without written prior authorization from the student (an exception is made when there is imminent danger or serious harm to self or others in this case, the counselor must take action to prevent harm).
