Wellness & Your Rights
Health can have a dramatic impact on our ability to pursue educational advancement. To address this, we ask all students to take the time to look after themselves – from precautionary medical treatment/visits to addressing health issues before they escalate to seeking counseling. Please contact your own health providers or take advantage of services offered through UCLA Student Health.
If you are struggling with schoolwork, transitioning to college life, meeting financial obligations or any other reason, UCLA has additional resources to help you, including:
- Career Planning and Exploration (UCLA Career Center)
- Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) – Wellness Program
Without balance, burnout is inevitable. Students have access to mental health resources, from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), which has a satellite clinic in Boelter Hall, to the Resilience in Your Student Experience (RISE) Center. Typically, the Engineering satellite clinic is scheduled from weeks 5-10, on Wednesdays from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and Thursdays from 2-4 p.m. In a virtual setting, students can access engineering-specific counselors from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. throughout the quarter. CAPS offers one-on-one therapy sessions, group therapy, and skills groups such as “Coping Throughout the Quarter,” “Break the Cycle of Anxiety” and “Progress Not Perfection.”
