2017 Class Gift: Counseling & Psych Services
Class of 2017
Leave your legacy! We are calling on the Class of 2017 to make a gift to the University of Arizona that will help students in financial need who need access to critical services at Counseling & Psych Services (CAPS). Make your gift by April 19 to see your name on the Arizona Stadium Jumbotron during the Commencement ceremonies May 12. Bear Down - Give Back!
Counseling & Psych Services
Counseling & Psych Services (CAPS) offers psychological counseling and psychiatric services to students to help them cope with personal problems so that they can successfully achieve their educational goals.
Licensed professionals provide brief treatment for anxiety, depression, difficulties with relationships, family problems, food/body image concerns, alcohol and drug concerns, ADHD, life crises, and other issues.
All currently enrolled UA students are eligible for CAPS services.
Why Should You Support the CAPS Student Assistance Fund?
Every student should have the option to get psychological counseling and psychiatric services when it is needed and finances are a barrier. Gifts from the Class of 2017 will help ensure that everyone has access to these critical services.
- 29 students have received assistance funds this year, but many more than that need the financial assistance to have access to CAPS services.
With your help, CAPS will be able to offer more help in suicide prevention, crisis management, counseling and therapy, medication management, mindfulness strategies, coping skills and beyond. THANK YOU!
