Welcome to

Counseling and Psychological Services

Counseling and Psychological Services is mourning the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and the countless other unarmed Black people who have been targeted and murdered because of their race. We unequivocally condemn acts of violence, hatred, and racism. These murders, and innumerable other acts of discrimination and oppression, represent a racist and anti-Black pandemic in our country.  CAPS is committed to dismantling systems of oppression and we stand in solidarity with our Black students, faculty, staff, and community members against these horrific acts.   

It is normal to feel anger, fear, sadness, exhaustion, confusion, or any number of intense or mixed emotions when incidents of racial terrorism are covered in the news or are the topic of conversations with those close to us.  If you would like to seek support, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by calling CAPS at 518-442-5800.  You may request to speak with a specific staff member if you would like, and can find a full list of our staff with information about each of us here.
