Outreach

UNLV CAPS offers a variety of outreach presentations to the university community to aid in the psychological and emotional development of students in the university environment for the purpose of enhancing performance, increasing skills, and navigating mental health challenges. Our presentations are geared towards prevention, enhancement of academic success, improving coping and life skills, building communications skills, and increasing awareness and knowledge around diversity issues.

Common topics include:

  • Managing anxiety/test anxiety
  • Dealing with depression
  • Overcoming social anxiety
  • Healthy relationships & setting boundaries
  • Recognizing and supporting students in distress
  • Personal growth (e.g., self-esteem, self-compassion, emotional regulation, resilience, imposter syndrome)
  • Understanding the mental health needs of diverse populations
  • Suicide awareness and prevention

Submit requests at least three weeks in advance of the event date for best availability.

Please note: Staffing for outreach requests is dependent on staff availability, office hours, and programming specifics. While every effort will be made to staff your request, during times of increased demand for clinical services, we may not be able to fulfill all outreach requests. Additionally, weekend or evening requests may be more difficult to staff.

Workshops

Student Wellness offers a variety of psychoeducational workshops throughout the year targeting general needs of the student population. Workshops focus on skill building and increasing awareness of mental health concerns and how to decrease symptoms of distress for commonly occurring concerns.

  • La Casa: Latinx Student Space
