College is a time of incredible growth and change. Navigating so many new experiences is exciting, but it can also be overwhelming. It’s okay to need help. 

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at Cougar Health is here to support you. Our team is committed to providing you with the best possible care and working with you through your challenges so you can thrive – on campus and beyond. 

We at CAPS want to support and provide care for our students from historically marginalized and minoritized communities. We know that you likely have been directly or indirectly affected by systemic oppression and trauma, and we are in an active process of dismantling white supremacy and other systems of oppression in the culture of our counseling center. We strive for the equal treatment and safety of all students and hope to be a place of support and refuge for you.  

You can read more about our commitment to care and support of marginalized students and find links to helpful resources in this letter.
