Elect to Express: An Art Workshop

CAPS is hosting a virtual 60-min expressive healing workshop for students. In this workshop we will learn to use expressive art as a means of processing and understanding our complex feelings around the upcoming election, navigating multiple pandemics, and building a sense of community and connection with one another.

Facilitators will provide specific prompts to help jumpstart the creative process and help guide discussion. Please know you do not need to be an artist to participate. It’s about the process, not the product.


From the global pandemic to enduring systemic racism and injustices, our communities have braved the negative impacts on our collective mental health. During these unprecedented times, we need to bolster our strength and resilience. In light of these challenging days and the uncertainty that lies ahead, CAPS and the Office of Student Affairs in the College of Engineering partnered together to launch the #EngineerPositivity campaign, a virtual take on the annual Positive Chalking event (now in its 5th year!).

Private Counseling Rooms at CAPS

Providing confidential services is essential to the work we do at CAPS. Some students may find it challenging to find a private space for their CAPS tele-counseling sessions to take place.

"I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired”*

Our collective mental health depends on our acknowledgement and affirmation that "Black Lives Matter" because the dignity and worth of every life demands this be true. The need to affirm that “Black Lives Matter,” demonstrated in frequent protests, says a lot about who we are, our culture, and our society. We at CAPS believe the outrage is real, warranted, necessary, and brave. We would like to acknowledge the emotions that our UM community is experiencing after the senseless killings of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and Ahmaud Arbery.
