IMPACT OF THE CONFLICT IN UKRAINE

It is with great concern that we view the escalating conflict in Ukraine. We know that this conflict has the potential to cause considerable suffering among those in Eastern Europe, and we express our love and solidarity with those who are impacted by the conflict. Counseling and Psychological Services remains a place of refuge on campus for any who are experiencing distress, including those who have ties to Eastern Europe and who may be experiencing particular turmoil at this time. We have walk-in hours from 8am to 4pm, Monday through Friday, and any who would benefit from a safe and confidential space to share their feelings are welcome to come in to CAPS (1500 WSC). Those who need help after 4pm can call CAPS at 801.422.3035 and speak with a crisis specialist. Again, our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the current crisis, and we stand ready to help our campus community.

We also have some resources for students, faculty, and staff about coping with crisis from world events:

We provide counseling services that are confidential and strive to create a safe environment for students of diverse age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, relationship status, national origin, immigration status, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, body type, and mental and physical ability. We respect and seek to understand the unique intersection of identities that individuals bring to our center, and believe that commitment to diversity directly contributes to the Aims of a BYU Education.

Quick Mental Health Screening

September 16, 2019 09:57 AM
Click the link above to take a free mental health screening questionnaire. These brief screenings are the quickest way to determine if you or someone you care about should connect with a mental health professional. They are completely anonymous and confidential, and immediately following the brief questionnaire you will see your results, recommendations, and key resources.

Before taking this screening, please note that the screening is offered solely for your information and is not monitored by CAPS. Any items endorsed by you or any scale elevations will not be viewed by CAPS faculty or staff. Consequently, if your screening shows that you have had thoughts of suicide in the last two weeks you should contact the crisis resources listed at the bottom of your results page.
