Welcome Broncos to Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

        Whether you are a new student or a returning one, you share a collective experience of resiliency and desire to persevere with your education despite the challenges of our current environment. Back in March, when we all began to feel the effects of the Pandemic, we had not imagined how much our lives would change and for how long. Needless to say, COVID-19 has altered many of our day-to-day routines in significant ways. However, our lives continue as we work on reinventing what we do and how we do it. CAPS has also done that and we continue to be here for you!

        We are offering Telehealth Mental Health services, which include video and phone sessions. Despite that the college experience will be different at this time, please know it can still be an enjoyable and rewarding time in your educational path. Our goal is still to provide quality mental health services to support your overall health and wellbeing.

       CAPS provides many services such as workshops, group or individual therapy, wellbeing coaching, crisis intervention, and support to access on- and off-campus resources. We expanded and developed some new services for virtual learning to further support your wellbeing in your academic journey.

  • CAPS has a YouTube Channel with videos on a variety of mental health topics that are accessible at any time that is convenient for you.
  • We have Drop-in groups in partnership with campus partners that you may already be affiliated with, such as our cultural centers. Workshops on a variety of topics like motivation, body positivity, and communicating in a virtual world are some examples.
  • Connect Pods are designed to provide a supportive space where topics can be explored in depth with a core group of students while providing the opportunity to create meaningful and lasting connections. These groups will start in October.
  • Our team also welcomed two new counselors, who will specialize in working closely with Student Support and Equity Programs and University Housing
  • We are also excited that CAPS has partnered with Bronco Wellness Center to develop the Bronco Kindness Project, a virtual letter exchange program designed to connect students in a virtual environment through letter writing. 

        Our experienced professional staff is committed to providing you with the support that can help you meet your academic, professional, and personal goals. We strive to provide culturally sensitive services that are respectful of your diverse identities. Our staff includes psychologists, marriage and family therapists, and a wellbeing coach. We hope that as you navigate this site, you will be able to learn about the many services available to you and learn about the process of accessing services. If you have any questions about our services, please feel free to contact us. We are here to help.
