Mental health is just as important as bodily health. You wouldn’t expect to do well in class with the flu or an untreated broken leg, so why would you let mental health concerns go untreated. Check out these workshops offered by CAPS this year.
Coming Out/Being Out
Wednesdays from 5:00-6:30, Student Center Room 347
Coming out is a lifelong, continuous process. This group welcomes gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and questioning people to come together and discuss issues regarding coming out, being out, sexuality, identity and other topics. This group is facilitated by Sharon Carney, PhD and Rose Wilson, LLMSW.
Mindful Being: Drop-In Meditation Group
Mondays from 12:10-12:50, room 313 Snow Health Center
This drop-in group is designed to help students learn the practice of mindfulness. Mindfulness leads to decreases in stress and anxiety, improvements in concentration and attention, and increases in self-awareness and overall emotional well-being. All levels of experience with meditation are welcome, even no experience at all! This group is facilitated by Jake Nienhuis, PhD, Jillian Carey, MS, and Rose Wilson, LLMSW.
