What is it?

There are many outreach services offered through Counseling and Psychological Services (i.e. workshops, presentations, consultation, and interviews). These resources are available to faculty, student organizations, University departments, and religious and community groups. Consultation is available in the areas of career and academic planning, learning styles and strategies, adjustment to college, and life transitions, as well as mental health/emotional concerns. These services are provided by CAPS faculty, staff, and supervised students.

How do I access it?

You can submit a request for an outreach presentation or workshop from CAPS faculty and staff by emailing our outreach coordinator, Dr. Phil Rash ( To receive a response, you must include the following information in the initial email:

  • Requesting organization or group
  • Type of request (Ward, On-campus class, Housing, Media Interview, Class Assignment, or Faculty/Admin presentation)
  • Email address to respond to request
  • Requested topic and intended audience
  • Date, time, and location of event requested**
    **at least one month advanced notice is required

What should I expect?

After you fill out the request form, a CAPS representative will contact you to clarify the specific needs and details of your request. We will do our best to meet each request; however resources are limited and priority will be given to events that directly impact BYU students, faculty, and the University community.

**We are most likely to be able to meet your request if we receive at least six weeks' notice prior to the event, and we require at least one month's prior notice for most requests.

Anticipated Outcomes...

Consultation services may be provided on an individual or group basis to identify specific needs and link appropriate resources to meet the needs of students, faculty or University programs in the areas of learning, career, advisement or personal/emotional concerns.
