BetterMynd - What To Expect

Welcome—we are glad you’ve made the decision to seek support! CAPS has partnered with BetterMynd, an online therapy platform for college students, to offer access to video-therapy sessions with their diverse network of licensed mental health counselors.

  • These 50-minute, live video-sessions are private, confidential, and can take place from the convenience of your laptop or smartphone.
