 Let's Talk

Let's Talk is a program that provides 10-15 minute drop-in consultations for SUU students. It's free, no appointment is necessary, and students are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis. These are informal, friendly, and confidential consultation. Speaking with a counselor consultant can help provide insight, solutions, and information about other resources. Let's Talk is not a substitute for formal counseling and doesn't constitute mental health treatment, but the counseling consultants can listen to your specific problems and introduce you to what it's like to speak to a member of our staff.

No topic is off-limits. Common concerns include:

  • Stress
  • academic performance
  • worry
  • relationships
  • sadness
  • family problems
  • financial struggles
  • adjustment
  • culture shock


Need help finding a space? SUU's Wellness Center has offered an available room to use for Let's Talk consultations*.

*Technology will not be provided. Please bring your own device to use for the zoom session or check out a Chromebook from the library. 


Groups

Workshop Graphic

At CAPS we are striving to meet the mental health needs of our students so that they can achieve their educational, career and personal goals. Group is a very powerful and effective way to bring about meaningful change and to get support.


Mental Health Support Peers

Mental Health Support Peers are skilled and tool trained Psychology seniors at SUU working under the leadership of the clinical staff at CAPS and the mentorship of the Psychology Department. They are here to support 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.

Mental Health Support Peers are located in the Health & Wellness Center (ST 175). Stop by or call to get connected with a Peer!

COVID Survival Guide

This guide provides practical and useful information to students navigating the ‘COVID 19’ Pandemic.  It is meant to serve as a reference guide for all coping with the crisis including accessing resources and support related to student’s physical and emotional needs. 

The guide begins with skills, techniques, psycho-education focusing on coping with stress, isolation, loneliness, and other practical strategies for surviving this pandemic.  As well as resource information detailing the various local, state, and federal resources for getting support during this crisis. We also include a comprehensive overview of the departments on SUU’s campus: how their services have changed since the crisis and the ways they are still serving students. 

Southern Utah University CAPS recognizes how challenging these changes have been for everyone during this difficult time. We hope that this Survival Guide will answer questions and guide you to different resources that are available to you.
