CAPS staff is strongly committed to addressing the mental health needs of a diverse student body through timely access to consultation and connection to clinically appropriate services. CAPS affirms that people of every background are to be treated with respect and dignity. The professional ethics and standards of the multidisciplinary staff at CAPS set a framework for understanding how facets of identity (e.g., gender, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, age, physical and mental abilities, religious beliefs and socioeconomic background) impact life experience. CAPS is committed to our training programs in social work and psychology and to our staff’s ongoing professional development including enhancing clinical skills and multicultural competence. We have an approach to mental health that integrates physical, emotional, academic, spiritual, social, and cultural well-being.
CAPS is dedicated to welcoming all to our services. To that end, we have provided CAPS overview brochures in various languages to better equip ESL students and post-docs at UNC with content about what we offer in their naitive language. If you have feedback on these or are willing to help expand this library to further languages, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
