Free Workshop: Peace in the Pandemic

COVID-19 has disrupted so many aspects of our lives including social and family relationships and academics. Constant worries about getting sick and general isolation have taken a toll on our individual and collective mental health. Our new Peace in the Pandemic workshop educates participants about neurophysiological responses to threat, mindfulness, and self-care, and provides guidance for how to keep moving forward when feeling overwhelmed and discouraged. 

Call CAPS at 520-621-3334 or speak with a CAPS provider for more information on joining this free workshop.


Speaking Out Against Racism

Racial injustices and violence impact us all. It's normal to experience a range of feelings and emotions in response to racism, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness, or guilt. It's also common to want to make a difference but feel powerless. Understanding what racism is and how to participate in anti-racism is the first step in speaking out against and ultimately eliminating racism.
