Mission Statement

The mission of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is to provide wellness programming and mental health treatment aimed at promoting positive mental health on campus. We recognize that students often encounter developmental, emotional, and interpersonal difficulties while in college, and we intervene on individual, group, and institutional levels to help students overcome obstacles and achieve their educational goals. We have specific expertise in college student mental health and provide evidence-based resources and interventions that help students achieve the “balanced development of the total person.”
