Grief and Loss
Appointment priority is given to
Answers to your questions about grief and grief counseling are just a phone call away. Please call CAPS for assistance at 406-243-4711.
When students are affected by loss such as a death of a family member, friend, fraternity brother, club member, or roommate, our staff will provide group debriefing or grief counseling upon request. Students who are concerned about the grief response of a friend may consult with us as well. For advice about how to initiate an outreach process by a CAPS staff member, please call our office at 406-243-4711.
CAPS also provides a Bereavement Group during the academic year for students who need more support or who may be dealing with longer term issues associated with loss. Our staff can also assist with requests to lower the amount of credits a student is taking and can sometimes advocate with faculty to have class requirements forgiven or postponed.
CAPS is well connected to the Association of Campus Ministers and can help out-of-town students find appropriate pastoral counseling at their request.
