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.
