The principal goal of CAPS is to help facilitate student development by providing practical tools and solutions to psychological and psychosocial obstacles that one may encounter while at STAC. CAPS staff utilizes empirically supported methodology to help students become independent and productive in their academic, personal, and professional endeavors. To achieve this mission, CAPS offers time-limited individual psychotherapy; counseling; crisis intervention; preventative outreach programming; consultative services; and Resident Assistant Training. CAPS works collaboratively with Academic Services, Residential Life, Campus Safety, and other College offices. In addition to the aforementioned, CAPS maintains a current database of off-campus mental health providers, should a student require services that are outside the scope of this Office, or to specifically meet an individual’s needs.
