Believing First: A Man’s First Step To Allyhood in the #MeToo Movement

Being an ally is more multifaceted than simply offering verbal support. Allyship requires showing up, listening, educating yourself, and speaking up. With regards to the #MeToo Movement, one component of allyship is demonstrating that you believe the experience, story, and pain without hesitation, doubt, and disbelief. Actively affirming the truth that has been shared is vital. CAPS has chosen to focus specifically on this one component because it can be both simple and very difficult for many men.

The Final Stretch

More students than ever are seeking CAPS services. We are pleased to be a helpful resource to UM students. The staff members at CAPS are working hard to meet student needs. We are heading towards the end of the semester and a semester break, so we want to make sure you know about the services we provide at this time of the year.

With only a three weeks remaining in the semester, we are not scheduling new, ongoing counseling services. However, we will continue to support student needs with consultation appointments and other services.
