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, and lead and deliver outreach education on student mental wellness. The Mental Health Support Peers work from The SUU Health and Wellness Center and collaborate with interdisciplinary and cross-campus mental wellness, student affairs and academic teams to provide students with wraparound and intersected opportunities for success and belonging at Southern Utah University.
