CAPS' statement of support for students responding to and affected by recent incidents of police brutality, violence, and protests.
Indiana University Southeast Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) is committed to the mission of Indiana University. IU’s mission explicitly states IU “strives to achieve full diversity and to maintain friendly, collegial, and humane environments…”.
In alignment with the University’s mission, CAPS supports all students, and we support students who experience discrimination, harassment, and trauma related to violence often because of the color of their skin. Systemized, historical, and recent violent acts targeted towards certain populations understandably creates emotional distress, depression, and anxiety.
CAPS’ support comes in many forms, including trauma response, outreach, and prevention consultations, and counseling services. We have a number of trained professionals who offer these services. While our offices remain closed to in-person contact due to the ongoing pandemic, we are available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 812-941-2244. In addition, we can be reached for emergencies through the IU Southeast Police Department at 812-941-2400.
