Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is a resource to help students with personal, emotional, psychological, and family problems. Succeeding with academic work often depends on effectively dealing with emotional and social issues.
Because understanding and dealing with a situation before it reaches a crisis stage usually leaves more options, students are encouraged to seek help sooner, rather than later. CAPS is open twelve months of the year.
We provide counseling services for a range of problems. Some students come for help with self-esteem or relationship issues, others after a trauma such as an assault, and others when they are feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or angry. Common problems include:
