CAPS supports those impacted by event in Ukraine-read a message
Dear UCR Students and Community,
The UCR campus is a diverse and integrated community made up of students, faculty and staff with origins and connections all over the world. UCR Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) recognizes that the events unfolding in Ukraine may bring concerns for those who may be impacted in any way. Additionally, we acknowledge that armed conflict, whether happening near or far, may have an effect on us all. This type of trauma can impact our mental health and well-being individually, and as a campus community.
CAPS sends our heartfelt support to all of those affected, 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 support you during these difficult and trying times. CAPS can provide a safe and confidential space to discuss any issue and offer support. Please contact us at 951-827-5531 and ask to speak to a crisis counselor or view our website to learn more about our services. If you are needing support after hours please call our phone number and select “option 1” to be immediately connected to a mental health professional.
If you are an employee please visit our Employee Faculty Staff Assistance Program or call 866-615-3047, for 24/7 access to a Guidance Consultant, who will answer your questions and, if needed, refer you to a counselor or other resources.
Statement of support from the American Psychological Association.
