CAPS recognizes that heightened national attention on sexual assault and sexual harassment impacts the student body at the University of Michigan. For some, the acknowledgement of ongoing interpersonal violence and social injustice may be healing, validating, and normalizing. For others, the content presented in the media may bring up painful memories of their own experiences and/or the experiences of loved ones with sexual violence.
Active Minds at the University of Michigan presents:
CAPS is happy to host a webinar from the Center for Collegiate Mental Health (CCMH) in collboration with the Commission on Counseling and Pscyhological Services within the American College Personnel Association.
- The Webinar will be held in the CSG Chambers and light refreshments will be provided.

We'd love it if you can come to all or part of this to learn more regarding national trends as well as local trends in student mental health.
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 8 different Schools and Colleges at UM.
