Incidents of Race-Based Hate

CAPS strongly speaks out against racism, prejudice, and hate in all forms because it is ultimately destructive to our individual and collective mental health. This past weekend, several incidents of race-based hate have occurred at the University of Michigan and in Ann Arbor.  This mirrors incidents that have recently occurred around our region of Michigan and around the country.


On September 5, 2017 it was announced that the federal government plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), which has caused concern for many across the country. This decision will have serious implications for many individuals, including our University of Michigan students, who are either directly or indirectly impacted by this policy. We in CAPS want to clearly say that DACA students are welcomed and valued members of our campus community, and we support them and their presence on this campus.

New Suicide Prevention Videos

Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) continues to lead efforts to increase student suicide awareness and education through the do something: Stop Student Suicide initiative.

In order to reduce the silence and the mystery that surrounds suicide, we offer these three videos, featuring knowledgeable voices, focused on what contributes to thoughts of suicide among our UM students and more importantly, how you can respond.

Standing With Charlottesville, Standing Against Hate

In the aftermath of the horrific display of hatred, violence, group supremacy and domestic terrorism by White supremacists and neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, Virginia, we at CAPS are aware of the impact this has on our students and our community (even though it is Summer and many are away from campus).
