CAPS virtual workshops for the semester can be found in the UWF event calendar.

Self-help Resources

In order to answer some common student questions regarding mental health topics, our staff has developed web-based reading material for self-help purposes. Topics include adjusting to college life, anxiety, bipolar disorder, coping with trauma, depression, eating disorders, stress management, self-esteem, romantic relationships, sleep hygiene, gender and sexual violence, racism and discrimination, grief, suicide prevention and adjustment strategies for returning students.

*In alignment with state laws, regulations, and ethics, teletherapy is only available to currently enrolled students who are located in Florida at the time of the service. CAPS partners with Therapy Assistance Online (TAO) Connect, Inc. to access to the secure and private Zoom platform to execute teletherapy health services.
