Group Counseling

Counseling Services offers a variety of counseling, support, and educational groups each semester. Participants benefit from the mutual support and learning that occurs from interaction with others who have similar concerns. 

Unless otherwise noted, all groups will require a pre-group screening. For more information or to schedule your pre-group consultation, please schedule an appointment here

If you have questions, email the group facilitator or caps@msu.edu.

Programs full for the current semester may be available the following semester.

CAPS is committed to providing clinical and supportive group services that are responsive to the needs of our students. If there is a group that you are in need of and you do not see it listed on our website, please feel free to email the CAPS group coordinator, Dr. Markie Silverman, at silve162@msu.edu.

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.
