Statement on Violence, Racism, and Oppression

All staff members in the office of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at Southern Utah University, along with over 800 other college student mental health offices around the world, seek to advance the cause of collegiate mental health through innovation, education, and advocacy.

We are committed to inclusive excellence and the promotion of social justice.  CAPS strongly speaks out against racism, discrimination, oppression, and violence in its many forms.  

As college mental health professionals, we have long known that hatred, bigotry and the perpetration of racial and bias-motivated violence are harmful to EVERYONE'S mental and physical health, including those who espouse it and those who are hurt by it.  CAPS condemns language and behaviors that aim to harm and divide people.  We also view college mental health professionals as having a responsibility to facilitate greater self-understanding, value individual and group differences, encourage and model respectful dialogue, and support the right's of all people to live in communities that are safe and promote emotional well-being.  We also must be educators, role models, and advocates who seek to create healthy learning and living environments that reflect the diversity of our campuses and our society and who seek to eliminate the harm that comes from hatred and violence.
