UCSB is a global community. The war in Ukraine is undoubtedly impacting the mental health and well-being of our campus community, especially those who live or study in Eastern Europe, those who have friends or family in Ukraine (or in neighboring border countries), those who are part of military families and/or those impacted by war in the past. CAPS recognizes the traumatic impact that armed conflict can have, even when we are not directly involved.
We are here to help students navigate these difficult times. If you are experiencing distress related to any impactful events going on nationally or globally, CAPS can provide a safe and confidential space to discuss any issue and offer support. Contact CAPS for support via our online CAPS Services Request form located on the CAPS homepage or use our 24/7 after-hours crisis line for support at (805) 893-4411 (press 2 to speak with a clinician).
You are encouraged to utilize other campus resources dedicated to supporting students. Here is a partial list:
