We seek to promote a community of care by providing support to faculty and staff the support they need in working with students.
This support can take many forms and ranges from consultations on how to support a student in crisis, to providing connection to resources, or how to promote a culture of mental health and wellness in class. Significant people in the lives of students sometimes develop concerns about them. CAPS is available to help with those concerns, through the process of consultation. During a consultation with a member of our staff, usually by phone, we listen to your concerns and offer some advice or recommendations about what you can do. Generally, we assist you in working further with the student rather than contact the student ourselves. In so doing, we are respecting the student's right to privacy and self-determination in seeking psychological assistance.
