Research and Technology at CAPS

The field of mental health care (counseling, psychiatry, and administration) is based on more than a century of research efforts aimed at understanding people, identifying mental health concerns, and developing treatments that work. CAPS not only draws from this research to provide the best care to our students -- but also actively contributes through internal research efforts such as annual internal evaluations (e.g., our client satisfaction survey), support of outside research projects within CAPS, and participation/leadership in national research efforts. Technology is infused throughout our center including such areas as clinical training, scheduling and filing, treatment, and research.

Center for Collegiate Mental Health (CCMH)

CCMH is a national counseling center effort to standardize the data gathered in counseling centers and to build a technological research infrastructure for counseling centers. Learn more about CCMH.
