In Community: Responding to the Events at the University of Missouri

With the recent events, protests, and racial tensions, taking place at the University of Missouri, CAPS would like to acknowledge ways in which this also impacts our campus community in its entirety at the University of Michigan.  Events like these can trigger a variety of emotional reactions such as anger, helplessness, fear, sadness, and anxiety, during an already stressful time of year for many students. We understand that events of this nature, which have a long-standing history, continue to evoke emotions, questions, and may spark debates between individuals.

CAPS 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 7 different Schools and Colleges at UM.  By doing so, each therapist can address the specific and unique needs of each culture through confidential clinical service delivery and tailored outreach, education, and prevention programs, engage with faculty and staff through consultation, and develop materials specifically tailored to each school and college.
