CAPS offers two sorts of groups: 1) weekly groups, which require students to sign up for a quarter and attend weekly after a short screening meeting with the counselor(s) running the group, and 2) drop-in groups, to which students can come any time with no screening appointment. For more info about a specific group, call the counselor(s) listed.

Call to schedule a short screening appointment and sign up for the quarter—groups usually fill up by the second or third week of the quarter. All groups will be offered by Zoom.

CAPS Drop-in Groups Schedule for Fall 2022 - Coming soon!





The schedule posted above and our CAPS GOOGLE CALENDAR are updated at the beginning of fall, winter, and spring quarters and provide the schedule and description of the groups we are currently offering.

Groups that are offered each quarter vary, but typical groups offered by CAPS may address the following:

  • Anxiety issues
  • Eating problems and body image
  • Grief and loss
  • How one relates to oneself and/or other people
  • LGBTQI identity and concerns
  • Mindfulness and meditation
  • Sexual trauma
  • Student of color identity and concerns
  • Support and discussion around general issues for women

To get started with most of our groups, contact the CAPS main office or the counselor facilitating that group (listed on the group schedule page), who will talk to you about the group to make sure that it would be appropriate for your needs and prepare you for the group experience. This contact will give you an opportunity to decide if the group is a good choice for you. Most of our groups require that you sign up at the beginning of a quarter and attend weekly for that quarter. For drop-in groups, you can just show up any week with no prior sign-up.

Sign-up for weekly groups usually happens in the first week or two of each quarter, so be sure to contact us before groups fill up and close for the quarter.

Please call CAPS at (831) 459-2628 for more information or if you require a disability accommodation for a group.
