Message From the Director

Message From the Director—Fall 2016

Welcome to all of you who are new to campus, and welcome back to those of you who are returning! We have been working hard at CAPS this summer to be ready to meet all of your mental health–related needs.  CAPS offers a wide array of services, including self-help resources, referrals, groups, counselor-led and peer-led workshops, psychiatry, individual therapy, and crisis services.  They are all detailed on our website, so please take a few minutes to explore around.  I also want to acknowledge that we are living in a time of significant social and political unrest and seemingly exposed to troubling news on a daily basis from our country and around the world.  These events can hit home and impact your ability to get the most out of your college experience.  We stand ready to support you, so please let us know how we can help.  We are here for you.
