Outreach Services at CAPS

In accordance with recommendations regarding safe practices for COVID-19 prevention, CAPS has temporarily suspended in-person presentations and trainings.  We are still offering outreach services via video conferencing.  We also have videos available on some common outreach request topics on our YouTube channel.

CAPS provides educational and preventative outreach programming to the Purdue University community. Workshops and seminars will be designed with a focus on prevention, education, experiential intervention, relationships and self-awareness. We will do our best to meet your request; however, it may be that our staff resources are limited and the program request may be declined. This is to focus resources on clinical services when demand for those services peaks at particular points in the semester.

CAPS is also currently offering scheduled programs on various topics. Please click to see available programs, and corresponding details for the programs. Please also consider Purdue’s Wellness Programs, which also provide presentations about well-being topics relevant to students.

How to schedule a presentation:

  • Submit the online request form at least three weeks in advance.
  • After receiving the online form, a CAPS staff member will contact you to discuss the activity.
  • Once you have confirmation by a staff member that your activity request will be fulfilled, advertise your program.

Frequently Requested presentations:

  • Self-care and/or stress management
  • Addressing stigma about mental health
  • Identifying signs of distress, supporting others and self
  • Procrastination
  • Imposter syndrome
  • Toxic relationship

CAPS also provides consultation services for the Purdue community. This may involve evaluating and supporting the intervention of Purdue faculty and staff in managing difficult situations effectively (i.e., traumatic events, grief debriefing, distressing emails, etc.) with individual(s) of concern. Consultation is available to staff, faculty, and students by calling CAPS.

Some therapists at CAPS also maintain a liaison relationship with various Purdue agencies. These liaison relationships help us effectively address the specific needs of each of these organizations and provides you with a person of contact at CAPS for assistance. We will have a page with more details on these relationships coming soon.
