Unfortunately, due to high demand on CAPS services, we are limited in our ability to fulfill classroom or student group requests for the Spring 2024 semester. For the spring we will only offer our Wellness Workshops; all Wellness Workshop include an overview of CAPS services. We are unable to accommodate other presentations requests. As a reminder, requests require 4 weeks advance notice to allow adequate time for staffing.
For programs geared toward students, please review our Wellness Workshops offerings. These are single session workshops that cover frequently requested topics and are available in virtual, in-person, and asynchronous formats. We can provide attendance if required as a course assignment or extra credit. We also have two drop-in or a la carte workshop series, which can be found in the Workshops section of our Services page. Students may also benefit from some of our Suicide Prevention training options.
For programs geared towards faculty/staff, please review our page on Cultivating a Community of Care. This page outlines three different training options for faculty/staff to learn skills to better respond to student mental health needs.
If you have an idea or request for a program specifically addressing the mental health or wellbeing needs of students of color, please visit the site for the Multicultural Mental Health and Equity Initiative for more information and to submit an MMHEI-specific program request.
If an immediate need arises you can contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work with you to try and meet your needs.
