SUU CAPS Peer Mental Health Support Program

Mission Statement

Southern Utah University Counseling and Psychological Services (SUU CAPS) Mental Health Support Peers are skill and tool trained Psychology Seniors at Southern Utah University working under the leadership of the clinical staff at SUU CAPS and the mentorship of the SUU Psychology Department. Mental Health Support Peers work alongside students experiencing mental health challenges. Peer Mentors support students through group and individual outreach in order to teach and transfer mental wellness skills in the service of connecting students with clinical supports/therapeutic alliance. SUU CAPS Peer Mental Health Support Workers also refer students to campus and community wellness resources, lead and deliver outreach education on student mental wellness, and work in collaboration with the SUU ACES Team, The SUU Care and Support Team and The SUU Wellness Center to provide students with wraparound and intersected opportunities for success and belonging at Southern Utah University.
