Group counseling can be even MORE effective than one-on-one counseling for helping students with some problems. Groups of 5-8 students and 1-2 counselors provide support and feedback in ways that many students find really helpful! Group counseling can help students work on self-esteem, assertiveness, creating deeper relationships, healthier conflict, and so much more. See attached list of CAPS & SACS groups, then call us to learn more!




Wednesdays, 1:30-3:00pm

A free, confidential, all gender support group for students who are questioning the health of a relationship (friendship, romantic or family) and/or recognizing patterns of power and control within. Call (812)855-5711 to schedule a “CAPS Now” appointment to learn more about this group!




IU students, faculty and staff can call the CAPS after-hours crisis line anytime CAPS is closed to consult with a counselor about a student of concern. Simply call CAPS at (812) 855-5711 and choose Option 1.




Mondays and Tuesdays 10:00-10:45am & Wednesdays and Thursdays 2:00-2:45pm. (Thursday session is geared toward those with prior experience.)  Dr. Carolyn Lee will teach you how to practice Mindfulness, a research-based strategy to help reduce anxiety, improve concentration, regulate emotion, and much more!
