Mental Health Resources

All of these resources are available to the entire UNLV Community regardless of an individual’s race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability status, gender identity, sexual orientation, or other social identities

Students seeking care may also make an appointment with CAPS by calling 702-895-3627.

Faculty and staff can play an invaluable role in helping students who are in distress. Your expression of interest, concern, and compassion is an important factor toward a student seeking the assistance they need. Professional staff and administrators are ready to assist you. We encourage faculty and staff to document incidents using the Rebels Support Team Report and submit the form to the Office of Student Conduct (OSC). A student will have a right to see the Rebels Support Team Report. 

Faculty, administrators, staff, or others who participate in UNLV’s education programs, employment opportunities and activities with questions, concerns, or complaints about sex discrimination, sex harassment or sexual misconduct are encouraged to contact the Title IX coordinator.
