The Current: INTERVIEW WITH CAPS DIRECTOR

Social Media Team, The Triton 

The Counseling and Psychological Services, also known as CAPS, is a very valuable program to our UC San Diego campus. Dr. Reina Juarez, the director of CAPS, was kind enough to give a run-down of their services here on campus and addressed some important questions and myths. Dr. Juarez realizes that “psychological pain is physical pain” which is why it is important for the student to facilitate the holistic approach to care by explaining what they are feeling and understanding why their culture may play a large role. I appreciated that she called all students “resilient” and empathized with the difficulty in adapting to various forms of pressure in a hectic quarter system. She addressed the elongated wait rumors and encouraged students to truly assert the level of emergence to the CAPS team. She makes the effort to promote the hands-on ReLyfe resource in which students can get help on their phone. She also mentions “I-flourish” which provides students a personalized and fast way to help students’ mental well-being and health.

Are you stressed out from midterms?
