Counseling and Psychological Services

Workshops, Outreach, and Psychoeducational Programs

  • While much of our time is devoted to the students who come into our offices for clinical services, CAPS also serves the larger campus community through a variety of outreach activities. Outreach is a broad term to define activities geared toward providing the campus community with information and prevention through workshops, trainings, liasopn relationships, consultations with faculty/staff/parents, and increase awareness about CAPS services and mental health issues.

    As psychologists and mental health professionals, we believe that knowledge and awareness are powerful prevention tools. CAPS' workshops and programs are designed to provide students as well as those who work with students with the knowledge and skills to maintain psychological health and wellness. We also offer programs to identify potential difficulties and prevent or intervene early before problems get worse, such as the Mental Health Screenings Days offered in collaboration with other campus departments.

    Our professional staff is available to meet with students in the residential halls, campus clubs, athletic teams and other students groups to to provide educational and skill-building workshops on a variety of topics. We are also available to provide training for residence halls such as stress management, communication and listening skills, assertiveness, and time management.
