CAPS stands in solidarity with and extends support for all BIPOC and minoritized individuals and communities. We understand that on-going acts of hate in the context of the global pandemic, political conflict, and continued acts of racial violence against African American, Indigenous, and BIPOC individuals and communities are impacting the mental health and well-being of our CLU community. We recognize that exposure to violence can be traumatizing and bring many emotions; threatening and violent acts are disturbing, even when we are not directly involved. Please contact us if you are in need of services, or review our webpage for resources for ways to care for yourself. Additional national lifelines and resources, including mental health, reporting hate crimes, and academic and legal assistance can be found here.

CLU staff and faculty may access the Employee Assistance Program for support and resources, or contact CAPS Director, Dr. Beth Turner, for additional resources or referrals.

CAPS is providing hybrid services. All students are encouraged to come to the office or call-in for psychological emergencies during office hours. Go to the Emergencies tab for more resources after-hours. Go to the Services tab for more information about our services.

In-person scheduled appointments are available to all vaccinated students. Teletherapy scheduled appointments are available to all students in California. 

Counseling and Psychological Services' mission is to promote effective coping to find self-compassion, insight, and purpose.  We honor the struggle, empower connectedness, and cultivate resilience. 


CAPS is committed to diversity and inclusion.

CAPS is comprised of a diverse range of cross-disciplinary staff who are personally and ethically committed to providing care that is grounded in multicultural humility and social-justice values. We value diversity and recognize the unique challenges students may face based on one’s race, creed, color, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, immigration status, gender identity and expression, body size/shape, marital status, national origin, political opinions/affiliations, genetic information, veteran status, and the many other ways one might identify. Throughout all of our services, including individual counseling, group counseling, and workshops, we strive to provide fair and inclusive access to better serve the student body, strengthen society, and honor the diversity of our entire campus community.

CAPS se compone de una amplia gama de personal interdisciplinario que se compromete personal y éticamente a brindar atención basada en valores de humildad multicultural y justicia social. Valoramos la diversidad y reconocemos los desafíos únicos que los estudiantes pueden enfrentar según su raza, credo, color, religión, edad, discapacidad, orientación sexual, estado migratorio, identidad y expresión de género, tamaño / forma del cuerpo, estado civil, origen nacional, opiniones políticas / afiliaciones, información genética, estado de veterano y las muchas otras formas en que uno podría identificarse. En todos nuestros servicios, incluyendo terapia individual, terapia grupal y talleres, nos esforzamos por proporcionar un acceso justo e inclusivo para servir mejor al cuerpo estudiantil, fortalecer la sociedad y honrar la diversidad de toda la comunidad del CLU campus.
