U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

The staff of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) created this space to acknowledge that while student life can be consuming due to academic demands, being a student is only one aspect of an individual’s identity. The current events of the world beyond, and within, the University of Michigan campus continue to evolve and shape the lived experience of us all. As a result, we think that it is important for the university community to remain aware of global, national, and local events, especially those that might impact the campus community and students’ daily life, health, and wellness.

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) affirms diversity, is committed to providing culturally competent services, and works to condemn oppression in every form. Now we have created this webpage to acknowledge current issues, offer support, and provide information that matches our commitment to fostering diversity and the inclusion of all students who are navigating the events of a very complex world.

Chalking on Campus (Updated April 7th)

UPDATE April 7th:
It is disheartening to report that on the evening of April 7, 2016, discrimination messages were for the second time written on the university Diag against Muslim communities. As quoted by President Mark Schilissel, “Racial, ethnic or religious discrimination have no place at the University of Michigan.” Let’s come together as a united community to stand up against hate, oppression, discrimination, and prejudice of all forms.

A Response To Terror: Brussels, Turkey, Egypt, Iraq and Syria

CAPS would like to extend our support and condolences to all of those effected  by the horrific terrorist attacks that have occurred in recent weeks.  As details continue to emerge about the bombings in Brussels, we want to offer our sympathies to those who have been impacted.

Sadly, the attacks come in light of recent tragedies in Turkey, Egypt and Iraq. We also want to recognize the events taking place in Syria and the psychological toll to all who experience countless acts of violence.
