The mission of Counseling and Psychological Services is to foster the psychological development and emotional well-being of students through counseling and psychotherapy, preventive and educational programming, consultation and outreach, as well as contributions to the mental health professions. In collaboration with students, schools, colleges, and other units, Counseling and Psychological Services strives to develop a diverse, inclusive and multicultural community.
As an agency, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is committed to the promotion and celebration of diversity in all of its forms. We are a multi-cultural, multi-disciplinary, and multi-theoretical staff striving to provide culturally competent clinical services, outreach programming, and training opportunities. We recognize that not all diversity is universally valued. For this reason, we feel a special obligation as a mental health agency to affirm diversity, to condemn oppression in every form and to encourage the utilization of our services by all students, including those that might be reluctant to receive standard/traditional forms of treatment. To this end we seek to provide a safe, welcoming and affirming environment for all persons that seek our services.
