My name is Catherine Walsh and I am a Psychology PhD candidate at UCLA. I am currently serving on the board of the Bruin Mental Health Advisory Committee, which works with the CAPS executive team to provide a student voice and engage with students about the status of mental health services on campus. One of our current projects is seeking to understand how CAPS can better help serve graduate and professional school students at UCLA, so we have developed this survey as a first-pass at engaging the UCLA graduate student community. The survey should take 5 minutes or less to complete, and participants will be entered into a raffle to win a UCLA store gift card.
UCLA Center for Psychological Services (CAPS)
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is a multidisciplinary student mental health center for the UCLA campus that offers confidential counseling for all medical students. Short and long-term care is available from psychiatric residents, community psychiatrists, and psychologists, at either no or reduced cost. The initial counseling office is located off campus for confidentiality reasons, but is close enough to be convenient.
