Psychological Support Unit

The Psychological Support Unit (UAP, Spanish acronym) is a mental health center that conducts awareness and prevention activities. This unit has a team of psychologists and psychiatrists with experience in aiding university students, and their mission is to promote, protect, and actively support the wellbeing and psychological health of UC students. The most frequent reasons for consultations are symptoms of anxiety and depression, but issues of sleep, interpersonal relationships, and different types of student difficulties are also addressed. Many times, these challenges are better faced with professional help. To receive care, you only need to be an enrolled student and request an appointment. Care is free and fully confidential.
