WESupport - Our Mission
WESupport is a student-run group affiliated with Wesleyan’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) that aims to help students navigate Wesleyan’s resources, provide daytime support for students, and help facilitate CAPS’ WESupport six-week training series.
We hold office hours every weekday to provide support for students who would like to speak confidentially with a peer. Our office hours are on a drop-in basis and are located at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), in Room 217 of the Davison Health Center.
For Spring 2014, our office hours are as follows:
Monday: 10 am-11 am, 1 pm - 2 pm
Tuesday: 1 pm - 4 pm
Thursday: 10 am - 11 am, 1 pm - 4 pm,
Friday: 10 am - 11 am, 2 pm - 3 pm
We welcome all students, whether you have big things to talk about or little things, or if you just want to drop in to chat and enjoy a cup of tea. We are here to just listen, and we protect your confidentiality absolutely.
Don’t worry about making an appointment or checking in with the receptionist at the downstairs window. Simply enter the CAPS building from the parking lot side and go upstairs using the side staircase to room 217. If the door is closed, we are currently meeting with someone. You can either reserve the next half hour slot by marking the sign-up sheet on the door with an X or simply come back at another time. If the door is open, feel free to come on in to chat!
