Support & Process Groups
CAPS offers a handful of weekly support and process groups for current University of Arkansas students. CAPS groups are funded through the student health fee, so there is no out-of-pocket cost to students to attend group therapy.
Group therapy is an effective form of treatment for many different concerns, including those commonly experienced by college students (including depression, anxiety, and adjustment issues).
Some groups specifically focus on a concern, such as anxiety, and are structured to provide information (psychoeducation) and training in skills to address the concern. Other groups are less structured and emphasize sharing, support, and feedback among members.
Engaging in group therapy offers many benefits, including:
facilitation or leadership from a mental health professional,
achieving relief from mental health concerns and symptoms,
learning that you are not the only one to experience a specific concern or mental health diagnosis, and
receiving and providing support and validation from and to other students much like yourself.
To find out more information about available groups, please call CAPS at (479) 575-5276. If you have a suggestion or request for a group, please leave a message for the group coordinator.
