Outreach and Education
Outreach and educational programs for the community are important components of comprehensive counseling services. The primary goal of outreach is to contribute to the academic and personal success of students through education, training and consultation.
Students, and their family members, learn about CAPS services during Summer Orientation and Fall and Winter Welcome sessions. Each year, we partner with The Office of Residential Life, The Office for New Student Programs, The Center for Health Promotion, and the Center for Student Leadership and Involvement to lead training and educational sessions for students and the college community. Links to online screenings for mental health and the Virtual Pamphlet Collection are always available on this website.
Pathways training is CAPS’ primary outreach instrument.
We value collaborative relationships in reaching out to students, and we welcome requests for outreach and for consultation. Clinical services are in high demand as each semester progresses however, and our first priority is the provision of direct clinical services to students. As a result, we are not able to meet all requests for classroom presentations or individual interviews, but we may be able to help identify alternate resources or assist in planning your program.
Educational materials in various formats are available at CAPS and in the resource rooms of the Health Promotion and LGBT Centers. Please stop by our offices during business hours to see if we have the information you need.
