CAPS - With You and Here for You
CAPS applauds President Brodhead for his stand on the recent travel ban on immigration to the U.S. CAPS is troubled by the resultant racial profiling, xenophobia, and Islamophobia that have intensified as a result of this policy and have impacted students’ mental health.
Duke CAPS stands with all students from all countries, all backgrounds, and all beliefs/values and recognizes that current events may have a differential impact on our students. Please click here for common reactions to critical incident stress and suggestions on ways to cope. We also encourage you to seek support from others, such as family, friends, and religious/spiritual communities. If you feel you need professional support, please consider calling CAPS.
We at Duke CAPS adhere to confidentiality rules that protect all students’ privacy. Without students’ written permission, CAPS legally cannot and will not disclose to anyone outside of CAPS staff the attendance or content of discussions with counselors - this includes any disclosure of a student’s immigration, visa or resident status. Please come by our new location on the third floor of the Student Wellness Building located at 305 Towerview Road or call (919) 660-1000 to meet with a counselor. In addition, CAPS highly values our engagement in the Duke community. CAPS staff is available to support your events in order to meet the needs of more students. Our center is able to provide services and therapy in six languages.
