CAPS Services and COVID-19 Pandemic
As we pass the one year mark of COVID restrictions, as well as remote classes and services, we pause to recognize that we have lived through a Year of Loss and to reflect on what, to many, feels like a Lost Year. In this time of chronic uncertainty, CAPS has had over 15,000 TeleMental Health Appointments and we will remain operational while adhering to safety measures to protect the health of the community. As advancements are made and plans develop, our top priority will remain the health, safety, and well-being of our community, on and off campus. We are planning for several contingencies and taking informed actions to limit the spread of COVID-19 while ensuring the continuity and availability of our services. We remain committed to our mission of providing timely, culturally responsive, and effective mental health services to our diverse UCSB student body, as well as professional consultation to faculty, staff, and families.
