Mental Health

Counseling and Psychology Services (CAPS)

CAPS is committed to creating an environment based on our values of multicultural, multi-disciplinary and multi-theoretical practices that allow our diverse student body to access care, receive high-quality services and take positive pathways to mental health. We also strive to find creative ways of reaching out to students and the UM community to nurture and develop a proactive, renewed sense of engagement throughout the campus.

What is QPR? 

Over the years, the greater U of M community has requested CAPS workshops and presentations focused on helping students who may feel suicidal or in distress. CAPS has joined 160 colleges and universities in providing QPR to their campus. Essentially, QPR is a behavioral intervention that focuses on getting a distressed student/individual referred for professional help. Since QPR’s launch in November of 2006, thousands (students, faculty, and staff) have gone through the training from many different units on campus.
