Mental Health Support
For individual support, the staff of the LGBTQ+ Resource Center are here to help. We are also able to provide referrals to UA’s Counseling and Psych Services (CAPS) that cover the cost of one or more sessions (that will not show up on your Bursar’s account). Referrals have to come from staff and any of the staff in the LGBTQ+ Resource Center can help initiate this process. Please let us know if you are in need of a referral to CAPS.
