About the RISE Center

The RISE (Resilience In Your Student Experience) Center is an affiliate program and physical extension of UCLA’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). The RISE Center is a holistic wellness hub that provides an array of programs, classes, trainings, and self-directed resources to foster and support resilience, connection, and well-being for our UCLA community. Services are free of cost to students and are led by a team of healing practitioners, mental health experts, prevention educators, wellness advisors, and student ambassadors. We champion best practices around equipping students with social-emotional skills, embracing difference and diversity, and elevating the concept of "mental health" as an every-day habit so that students can meet their full capacity for personal success.

Please use our outreach request form if you'd like to collaborate or request a training, or stop by the RISE Center for more information. More about RISE programming can be found on Instagram: @RISEcenterUCLA or Facebook: RISE Center UCLA, or you can email us at
