Well-Being Opportunities

CAPS Graduate Mental Health Survey

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.

Local Orchestra Seeking String Players

Hi all;

For those of you who are current or former string players, there’s an exciting opportunity to join Orchestra Nova LA. This orchestra has been around (under a different name) for a long time---I’ve been a violinist in it for over 30 years. There are a good number of young people in it, including some UCLA med students—in case I frightened you by saying I’ve been in it for over 30 years. I’m sending this out since we would like to build up our ranks and because it’s probably a truism that many of you have played an instrument at one time or another, but not all have kept it up. This is a chance to rejoin your past.

Rehearsals will start August 29th at 343 South Church Lane (a 5 minute drive from UCLA) and happens every Tuesday night (except for holiday breaks and summer) from 7:30 to 10. If you can’t make every Tuesday, that’s fine—and same if you can’t make every concert. There are about 4 concerts a year, held in various venues, mostly on the Westside. This is a low-pressure orchestra and one does not have to play at an advanced level to be part of it, but you should be comfortable playing orchestral music. We do play fairly standard classical repertoire but modern works as well. You can view the website at
If you are interested or have questions, please let me know (as well as what instrument you play and your prior instrumental experience). In addition, if you know anyone who might be interested in joining, feel free to forward this to them.

Best regards,
Jerome Greenberg
