Pathways to Healing - Guiding students through the healing process

We encourage you to continue to reach out to your campus friends and networks for ongoing support. You are welcome to call us at CAPS - our number is available 24/7 at 805.893.4411. Please also visit the new Pathways to Healing section of our website for more information on how to cope with any feelings of grief and loss that you and/or others may be experiencing.  

CAPS will be offering drop-in workshops for students who would like a safe place to talk about their feelings regarding the IV tragedy. Students will be offered education about grief and trauma as well as positive coping strategies to help with the healing process. These workshops will be held on:
