CAPS Response to Race-Related Trauma and Care

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) joins EVC Denis Simon, Dean Raphael Moffett and VCAA Scott MacEachern in expressing our grief, sorrow and compassion to all those who have been, and continue to be, impacted by the race-based tragedies occurring across the United States and the world. These tragedies reflect a longstanding and entrenched history of structural and systematic injustice that we condemn. We strongly oppose discrimination, hate, and intolerance and stand in solidarity with our Black students, faculty and staff.

We recognize that these tragedies may be especially painful and traumatizing to members of our Black or African American community. In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing racial injustice and violence, it is normal to experience a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness and/or guilt. CAPS is committed to provide affirming mental health care for all of our students who have been directly or vicariously impacted by experiences of racialized trauma.

CAPS has collected self-help tools for students who are impacted by recent race-based tragedies, please see the following resources for support. You can also email us for further information about our service (
