Upcoming Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) programs and resources

MULTI-CULTURAL OUTREACH – “LET’S TALK”:

Students now have even more ways to talk to someone about a problem! Our diverse group of consultants and counselors are from CAPS and the School of Education’s Dept. of Counseling and Educational Psychology.

“Let’s Talk Now” – free and confidential informal conversation with an emphasis on self-understanding and finding solutions to your problems. In addition to your walk-in conversation, “Let’s Talk Now” can connect students to other campus resources. Drop-in hours are available at Asian Culture Center, First Nations Educational and Cultural Center, La Casa Latino Cultural Center, Neal-Marshall Black Cultural Center and Office of International Services. Check go.iu.edu/letstalk for hours.

 

“Let’s Keep Talking” is for when you do need more than just a friendly chat. Professional counselors are available to meet and address more complex issues.
