Announcements & Events!

[6/1/2020] The staff at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) joins President Roth, VP for E&I Alison Williams, the Cabinet, and the entire Wesleyan community in expressing our anger and grief for all who are impacted by the widespread racial violence in our nation.  These horrific events reflect a longstanding, entrenched history of structural and systemic oppression of Black and African American people.  We stand with our Wesleyan community against the racial violence that is woven into the very fabric of our nation’s history.  We re-commit ourselves to work harder and do better as we seek justice, safety, and peace for Black and African American people.
Black Lives Matter.  
Even though we are separated by distance and the end of the academic year, the CAPS on-call clinician is available all summer and can be reached by calling 860.685.2910.  Please visit CAPS at Home for supportive resources.
In Solidarity,
The Team at CAPS
