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.


Embedded Model

In 2014, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) embarked on a new way of effectively and efficiently distributing mental health services for students across the schools and colleges by creating a community-based model - placing CAPS clinicians inside some of the schools and colleges, known as the embedded model.  CAPS counselors are now placed in 8 different Schools and Colleges at UM.

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.


Greek Community: "#timetotalk about Mental Health"

CAPS is proud to support our Greek Community for their ongoing efforts around mental health.  

Recent efforts were highlighted in a recent announcment from Shannon Cohen, Interim Associate Director of Greek Life and Panhellenic Advisor.


Special Focus On International Student Support

Given the recent immigration restrictions, and concerns around further restrictions, it is not uncommon to be feeling a range of complex feelings, including fear, uncertainty, anger and sadness, that make it difficult to focus on everyday life demands.  CAPS is here to help. We know that these events have affected many of you, be it as a direct target or as someone who cares about how this is negatively affecting your friends and classmates.
