Without balance, burnout is inevitable. Students have access to mental health resources, from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), which has a satellite clinic in Boelter Hall, to the Resilience in Your Student Experience (RISE) Center. Typically, the Engineering satellite clinic is scheduled from weeks 5-10, on Wednesdays from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and Thursdays from 2-4 p.m. In a virtual setting, students can access engineering-specific counselors from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. throughout the quarter. CAPS offers one-on-one therapy sessions, group therapy, and skills groups such as “Coping Throughout the Quarter,” “Break the Cycle of Anxiety” and “Progress Not Perfection.”
