The training and support received during onboarding as a CAPS Ambassador is comprehensive and thoughtful. To help guide others on mental health issues, ambassadors are given the tools, insights, and training to adequately represent the CAPS center. Also, I have been impressed with just how much the Social Work professors care and are engaged with encouraging student.
I am an Undergrad Student Leader (USL) for the school of Social Work. Through this, I am an advocate and can support my fellow SW constituents. I am also a CAPS ambassador. In this role I will educate and advocate on the importance of addressing mental health and the available resources at the Counseling and Psychological Services Center.
Social Work professors truly care about their students. No matter my questions or concerns, their responses are quick and supportive. The Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is a critical resource for me. Through their programs, I attend the weekly mindfulness & meditation course and have signed up for the Suicide Prevention training. Having access to a resource that allows me to address my mental health concerns allows me to be a better student.
