Chumash Land Acknowledgement
CAPS would like to acknowledge the Chumash people, who are the traditional custodians of this land on which our offices are located. We pay our respects to the Chumash elders, past, present, and future who call this place, Anisq’oyo, the land that Isla Vista sits upon, their home. We are proud to continue their tradition of coming together and growing as a community. We thank the Chumash community for their stewardship and support, and we look forward to strengthening our ties as we continue our relationship of mutual respect and understanding.
CAPS strongly believes in the community model and therefore has locations across campus and in Isla Vista. If you have a specific request to be seen at one of the CAPS Satellite Offices, please call the Main CAPS phone number and let your Brief Assessment clinician know of your preference. Please see below for a complete list of our locations.
Due to COVID, all CAPS services are offered virtually only until further notice.
