CAPS Peer Support Warmline

The  CAPS Peer Support Warmline is a non-urgent chat option for UR students who want to talk to a trained peer.  The warmline will be available to receive messages via the support widget on the CAPS homepage. All users will remain anonymous and all you need to do is enter your phone number to chat! The warmline is available seven days a week, 8pm-2am (except during fall, winter, spring breaks and over the summer). All text responders are UR students trained to provide empathetic, confidential mental health support for non-emergent situations.  Students can click on the green support widget on the CAPS homepage or resources page to start a chat with a trained, confidential peer. We have 35 interns (24 currently trained), from a wide range of diverse backgrounds and lived experiences.
The Support (green circle) warmline chat is located on the bottom right corner of this page and the Contact page.
