CAPS at Mason is Here for You:
We recognize that many students at Mason may be impacted by historical and recent events. As a staff, we hold firm to Mason’s values, commitment to campus well-being, and commitment to diversity and inclusion. CAPS staff and the services we offer are here to help students navigate through these times.
Pledge of Support
At Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), we recognize that incidents of racism both within our campus community and outside of it can significantly impact the emotional well-being of our community members, particularly people of color. We acknowledge the significant pain that race-related aggression activates and the reality of racial trauma. We understand the ways in which power, privilege, and oppression can inflict hurt onto members of the Mason community.
It is our mission to support members of the Mason community by creating a safe, supportive, affirming and inclusive environment that embraces diversity and honors the intersecting identities of everyone on our campus. CAPS provides a confidential space where students may seek support and process their feelings and reactions.
