Students seek the assistance of the Counseling and Psychological Services office for a variety of reasons, and whether it is adjusting to college life, depression/anxiety, body-image concerns, trauma, or something else, it is an honor and privilege to help students during their times of struggle.
The COVID-19 pandemic is a time of unprecedented struggle for all of us, and the Counseling and Psychological Services has adapted. For the fall 2021 semester, CAPS will provide counseling services through secure Zoom meeting rooms and in-person appointments, but specific details will be provided as the university lays out specific plans following CDC guidelines. Students who meet with a counselor in-person will likely need to wear a mask and maintain a distance of 6 feet from the counselor.
While many students will welcome the opportunity to see a counselor from the comfort of their home, others will likely miss the in-person contact. This is completely understandable, but we encourage you to give telehealth counseling a try (if you have not done so already). Should you have concerns about privacy or internet connectivity at home, a private space will be made available in the CAPS office for you to meet with a counselor on your laptop, tablet, or phone utilizing the University’s WiFi. Should you not have a device with which to connect to Zoom, a computer will be made available in this private space.

We are also pleased to announce the addition of TalkCampus as an additional resource for all students. Day or night, sometimes you just need the support of someone who understands what you are going through. TalkCampus is a safe place where you can talk anonymously with others going through the same or very similar struggles. Talk about depression, anxiety, body-image, stress, your classes, a bad break-up, or anything else for which you need support. No judgement, no bullying; just people who get you.
