5 Things You Should Know About CaPS

1. All students currently enrolled at the Pittsburgh campus are eligible for services at CaPS at no additional cost to them.

2. All services are confidential.

3. CaPS is one of many support resources on campus available to help CMU students with a range of struggles. We can help you identify what resources are the best fit for your needs.

4. You are not alone! CaPS sees about 13% of the student population each year. These are undergraduate and graduate students who at some point throughout the year decided to seek help with their struggles.

5. Asking for help is a sign of psychological strength, not weakness. At some point in life, most of us will experience some psychological hardship that could benefit from professional support. Asking for help when needed can result in a faster and more long-lasting recovery.

Taking care of yourself is not only about diet and exercise.  Taking care of yourself emotionally and mentally can help you be more resilient to stress and help you have better relationships among other things.  Some examples of self-care are:  taking a break from social media; surrounding yourself with supportive people; practicing positive self-talk; or taking a moment to breathe.  What works for you?
