GROUP COUNSELING SERVICES
A variety of counseling, support and educational groups are available each semester. Participants benefit
from the mutual support, education and interaction with others who have similar concerns. Unless otherwise
noted, all groups require a pre-group screening. To schedule your pre-group interview, complete the CAPS
Phone Request form at bit.ly/capsphonerequest and indicate which group you are interested in attending.
All Spring 2021 group counseling services will take place virtually via HIPAA-compliant Zoom.
Occasionally, changes to the group counseling schedule will occur during the semester. For all up-to-date
group counseling information, visit caps.msu.edu/services/groups.
Participation in CAPS programs is not restricted based on sex or race. All MSU students are welcome to
participate based on the clinical recommendations of CAPS staff.
