  • The Office of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

    The Office of Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides comprehensive short-term mental health services.  The goal is to assist students as they navigate through life’s challenges within the context of a highly rigorous and demanding academic environment.  Crisis appointments are available each weekday and an after-hours on-call center with licensed therapists is utilized for urgent concerns when the office is closed.  Appointments and the on-call service can be reached at 860-685-2910.
  • WesWell, the Office of Health Education

    WesWell understands the impact of student health on academic performance and is committed to providing services that are designed to develop healthy behaviors and prevent health concerns that may interfere with academic and personal success.  All incoming students are required to complete two online programs before entering campus focusing on alcohol and other drugs and sexual violence.  An email will be sent to students with log in information and directions to find the websites via their student WesPortal (under the Student Affairs bucket).  Check out the WesWell website for information on volunteer opportunities as a peer health advocate.
