CAPS provides support
September 6, 2017

The staff of CAPS would like to share our collective support of those individuals and family members affected by the recent decision by President Trump and comments by AG Jeff Sessions regarding ending the DACA program. CAPS staff would like to encourage anyone needing to talk and seek support to schedule a visit to our office. We feel that processes and programs designed to address inequities and continue to try to heal the hurts felt in this country are being undone negatively impacting the fabric of our society. Please know that you have a safe space at CAPS, where you can process any concerns and feelings in a confidential manner.

Also note that leaders of major universities across the country have issued a statement in support of DACA and its recipients. To read more visit:

CAPS denounces discrimination
August 22, 2017

Welcome! To our new, first-year and transfer students, we wish you a great year in your new Purdue Family. To our returning students, it's good to have you back.

Considering the recent events in Charlottesville, we at Purdue Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) want to make it known that we strongly denounce all types of discrimination, all forms of oppression, and all acts of hatred and violence such as those displayed during the rally on August 12 and in other recent events. CAPS' mission is to value and uphold principles of multiculturalism and social justice, and we strive to welcome and support people of all races, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, ability status, socioeconomic status, age, national origin, and other cultural identities and backgrounds. We encourage all students affected by these events to support and take care of one another. Seek support and self-care, whether that be through services at CAPS, conversations with friends, support from cultural centers across campus, or in your own specific way. If you think we can be of help, please do not hesitate in reaching out to us. An appointment at CAPS can be made through our website or by simply walking into our offices on the 2nd floor of PUSH.

We look forward to a great semester with you all. Boiler up!
