About CaPSU

Our Vision

The University of Peradeniya, one of the oldest and largest residential universities in Sri Lanka has recognized mental health as an integral part of maintaining good overall health whereby students would realize their abilities, cope with the day to day stresses of life, work productively, and make positive contributions to the country.

Our Mission

Provide support and guidance to students facing mental health problems due to the present economic and political crisis in the country, examination stress, the poor financial status of parents, relationships with no responsibility and any other mental health related problems.


The objective of the proposed counselling service set up at the Health Centre is to help students with mental health problems, give a sympathetic hearing, provide advice and direct them for treatment to overcome such issues and proceed with their studies and campus life.
