Counseling and Psychological Services for Athletes
Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) at University Health Services provides expert mental health care to all students at Princeton University. Many psychological issues are common to college students and may pose unique challenges for the student-athlete.
The NCAA has developed resources to address some of these common issues facing student-athletes, including Alcohol and Athletic Performance, Managing Mental Health Issues (including Depression and Anxiety), as well as the Female Athlete Triad.
Resources at Princeton University for these common psychological issues include;
- disordered eating and eating disorders
- alcohol and other drug concerns
- depression and anxiety
- stress management
Student-athletes can get more information about CPS by talking with the Athletic Medicine staff (team physicians, athletic trainers, sport dietitian). Athletic Medicine staff can also expedite appointments with CPS. Psychological situations, as all medical issues, are handled maintaining student privacy and confidentiality.
