Counseling

Outreach and Workshop Requests

CAPS frequently does outreach to the campus for student groups, academic departments, and administrative units.

The goal of this outreach is to demystify counseling, educate the campus on mental health issues, and to help others know our counselors. Although staffing for outreach is limited, we do our best to accommodate requests.
