CAPS Liaisons

Each CAPS staff member has an on-going liaison relationship with a department, office and/or student group at UH. This liaison relationship helps to bridge the gap between CAPS services and the campus community by educating the campus community on how to deal with students facing mental health issues. Specifically, the specified office can call to address concerns about student mental health issues, how to cope with a student that may be experiencing difficulties and how to refer to CAPS. In addition, the staff liaison can act as a direct referral source for that office or act as the key outreach program leader.
