Mental Health Screenings

Clinical therapists are available to provide workshops, seminars, and presentations to groups of 10 or more UTPA students, staff, or faculty. CaPS can also develop presentations on topics not listed below by focusing on your group's needs. Counseling and Psychological Services cannot guarantee that all requests will be met due to CaPS' staffing needs and therapist availability. See a list of sample presentation topics.
CaPS is also offering Mental Health First Aid training, a comprehensive, interactive 12-hour course that helps the public identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.
Requests may be made by contacting the Director of CaPS at minimum 2 weeks in advance with date/time requested, presentation topic, audience (group and group size), and location. The Director may be reached at 665-2574 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mask Project is an art project whereby participants design and decorate a mask to express thoughts and feelings related to depression, grief, and/or hope as part of our campus' suicide prevention effort. Everyone is invited to come and create a mask - no artistic talent is required. Masks will be on display throughout the week. To view a descriptive presentation of the Mask Project, click here. A list of supplies CaPS used for the project is also available.
