Taking care of your emotional health
The year 2020 brought more challenges than we could have imagined. Doing everything on your list--work, school, relationships, family responsibilities, and self-care--likely takes more energy and effort than ever before. If you feel overwhelmed, sad, or anxious, it is even harder.
Taking care of your emotional and mental health is an important part of taking care of you!
IUPUI CAPS is offering a full range of services through remote and telehealth options. To support your mental health while observing social distancing and public health guidelines, no in-person services are offered at this time.
As a starting point, check out our self-help resources:
Or, consider some of our drop-in virtual workshops.
If you a looking for group or individual counseling, medication management, and/or testing services, contact our office (317-274-2548 or firstname.lastname@example.org) about scheduling an appointment. If you are looking for in-person services, take a look at our community provider lists and contact our case manager if you would like some assistance in identifying community options.
Due to the public health crisis, all services are being provided remotely through secured telehealth platforms. Contact us for more information.
CAPS’ email is not monitored after business hours. Please do not use in emergencies.
We’ll help you find the right mental health service for you
Your first meeting with a CAPS counselor will focus on understanding what your concerns are and what you hope will be different as a result of connecting with CAPS. We will make recommendations for next steps based on this information and your unique situation.
If you’re experiencing suicidal thoughts, are having trouble completing daily tasks, or are facing an acute stressor that threatens the safety of yourself or others, we’ll arrange a same-day emergency appointment.
CAPS on-call counselors are available 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call us at 317-274-2548.
If you are in imminent danger or require immediate assistance, call 911 or the Indiana University Police Department at 317-274-7911.
For after-hours crisis management or additional support, contact one of the following 24-hour numbers or resources:
- Crisis and Suicide Hotline: 317-251-7575
- National Suicide Prevention Line: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
Support for students experiencing sexual or relationship violence
If you, or someone you know, has experienced sexual or relationship violence, consider talking with our confidential advocate.
Take advantage of our self-screening tools
Life can be tough and sometimes it’s hard to know if it’s time to reach out for extra support. Our self-screening tools can help you evaluate your health so you can make better decisions.
These tools aren’t meant to diagnose a problem—to do that, you’ll need to make an appointment. But they can serve as an important first step in your mental health journey. We also have links to mental health resources where you can learn ways to help yourself or others.
