CAPS "Embedded Model" Adds New Staff in 2nd Year

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.
