CaPS Outreach Prevention and Education (COPE)

Through the COPE program, CaPS engages the CMU community through holistic and inclusive trainings that increase access to services, reduce barriers and help eliminate the stigma around seeking help.

COPE's philosophy around community engagement is grounded in a culturally inclusive approach that allows us to assess and create programming around the unique needs of the campus community. Together we can facilitate an understanding of self, others and the community around us.
