More than 2 out of 3 students who come to CAPS report that anxiety or depression is their main concern.
Luckily, very effective techniques and self-help methods exist that can help you feel less depressed and more in control of your anxiety. And the best thing is, you can implement these on your own, with just a little bit of knowledge and practice.
CAPS is proud to offer two brand new essential skills workshops that will teach you the skills you need to know to feel more in control and better equipped to deal with the challenges in your life.
Workshops are much like attending a class. Students meet for 1 hour each week for 3 weeks. Each week a CAPS clinician will provide attendees with new information and guide students to practice new techniques they can implement in their lives.
We offer essential skills workshops on different days and at different times of the week. Ask your CAPS counselor for more information to find the workshop that works best with your schedule.
No, essential skills workshops are only for CAPS clients and you will need to be referred to a workshop by a CAPS counselor. If you would like to learn skills to better manage anxiety or depression, you can walk in for a triage appointment and let your counselor know. They will then help you determine if an essential skills workshop is a good fit for you.
