Groups, Lunch Series, & Workshops

Thank you for your interest in a group at  CAPS. At this time, we are not offering groups as part of the University response to COVID-19. Please call or come in to CAPS to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your concerns with a counselor.  CAPS offers a number of undergraduate and graduate groups. Starting dates for the groups vary, but typically begin 3 to 5 weeks after the start of the semester. Groups are free for U of M students. The article provides links to videos with some information on each group.
