Check below for Spring semester 2015 offerings!


Students! HELLO!

WESupport, the peer mental health student group, is once again teaming up with CAPS to bring our community Mental Health Support Groups.

This semester, WESupport is offering a bunch of new student-facilitated support groups in order to meet the varying needs of the student body.

 

If you’ve been struggling with anxiety, depression, the pace of college life, loneliness, stress, relationships, or anything else, you should join us!

Trained students facilitate, as well as participate, in the support groups.

Groups will maintain a strict policy of confidentiality in order to ensure a safe and respectful environment for all attendees.

If you have any questions or concerns, email us at WESupport@wesleyan.edu

Hope to see you there!


 

Office Hours

Spring 2015 Hours

Tuesday: 1:00 - 4:00 pm 

Thursday: 1:00 - 4:00 pm 

Friday: 1:00 - 4:00 pm 

We hold weekday office hours 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 the SART intern room of the Davison Health Center.

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 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 rear parking lot side (entrance marked with Student Health Center Hours), go through the first door on your left and up the staircase. Once upstairs, enter the hallway and turn left. The SART intern office is located in the back right corner.  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!
