U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

CAPS Facebook page

Say hello to the CAPS Facebook page, dedicated to providing information to improve the overall emotional health and wellness of University of Michigan’s students and campus community. Our Facebook page allows students to engage resources outside of the formal counseling setting. With over 95% of college students using Facebook, CAPS felt it was important to embrace this new form of outreach to connect with students through a medium that appeals most to them. CAPS highly values input from students, and in creating this page looked to students for feedback about what they hoped to gain from the new page.

  • How to be Leaders At Their Best

  • How to dealing with common student concerns as they arise throughout the year (e.g. finals stress, managing holidays, etc)

  • Stress management

  • Depression and anxiety

  • Mindfulness

  • Sleep habits
