Groups and Workshops: Overview

CAPS offers a variety of groups and workshops throughout the academic year, primarily in fall, winter, and spring quarters. Based on your initial appointment, we may recommend one of these services. Call us at (831) 459-2628 to get more information on groups and workshops.

Groups

Groups, led by CAPS counselors in fall, winter, and spring quarters are typically held once a week for a quarter; many of the same groups meet quarter to quarter. Most of our groups require sign-up at the start of the quarter and commitment to attend for that quarter. A few groups are "drop in," meaning you can just show up any week with no sign-up required.

Visit our Groups page to learn more and see the most recent schedule, updated at the start of each quarter.

Workshops

Some workshops are offered by CAPS counselors and others by our trained Peer Educators. Workshops may occur on a one-time basis or as part of a series. We currently offer two different three-part series, Anxiety Toolbox and Mindful Living in fall, winter, and spring quarters. A new workshop being offered multiple times in fall quarter 2018 is "Psychiatry 101: Is it right for me?" This hour-long workshop is for students interested in and/or with questions about medications for mental health concerns, such as depression and anxiety.

Visit our Peer-Led Workshops, Anxiety ToolboxMindful Living, and Psychiatry 101 pages to learn more and see the most recent schedules.

We can also work with student and professional UCSC staff to offer workshops tailored to your audience: Contact us at (831) 459-2628 to discuss workshop options. Please give us at least 3 weeks' notice so we can coordinate with you and prepare.
