College can be a complex time for students, characterized by growth and change. While there are many benefits of an advanced education, it also brings with it many challenges that can feel overwhelming. CAPS continues to focus on offering increased accessibility, flexibility, choice, and control over mental health treatment, to help students learn how to work through life’s challenges, heal emotional pain, and develop the necessary skills to lead healthy and balanced lives. Some reasons students may seek support from CAPS include coping with the increased academic demands, homesickness/adjustment concerns, relationship changes, stress management, and managing their own mental health condition. To request services, please contact CAPS at (321) 674-8050 or go to the website at: https://www.fit.edu/counseling-and-psychological-services/. Additional self-help resources and 24-hour crisis support can also be found on the website. You are not alone! CAPS is here to help you be the most emotionally well Florida Tech Panther that you can be!
