Policy: 

Outreach and consultation services are provided within the context of a community psychology model.  CAPS provides services to a variety of campus community programs, units, departments, and individuals using primary intervention (e.g., education, mentoring, social support) and secondary intervention (e.g., consultation, debriefing, mediation) approaches. Our psychiatric staff provides psychiatric in-service programs regarding relevant mental health topics, as well as consultations to the greater campus community regarding psychiatric services and medication. Our goal is to intervene in the environment and ecology of the campus in order to enhance the university’s academic mission and promote a harmonious multicultural community in which students can achieve their educational and personal goals.
