New Student Support Group Available through NAMI on Campus
August 20, 2020
The Healing Room is a new free virtual support group on campus made for students, by students. Our aim is to allow students to discuss various mental-health related topics in a safe space, hopefully bridging the gap between the students of Purdue and the mental healthcare system. Each week, a new topic will be discussed and led by trained support group facilitators. From eating disorder recovery to your perceptions on mental illness, we hope to explore mental wellness together. For questions, please contact Deemah at namipu@purdue.edu.

Off-Campus Mental Health Care with Thriving Campus
March 30, 2020
CAPS is glad to announce that we now have ThrivingCampus, a service that provides students a way to search for mental health providers in many areas, both locally and across the country. Purdue students can access providers' profiles in an online directory, and learn more about potential providers prior to contacting them. This tool makes it easier for students to search for and connect with ongoing, longer term off campus mental health providers, as well as providers offering particular kinds of services.
