Our Third Promise to You: Develop University-Wide Vision for Mental Health
As the only slate who attended the candidate forums for the new CAPS director search, we have already begun establishing relationships with all three candidates, giving us the advantage of being able to immediately get to work once the new Director is chosen. The Director of CAPS is seen as the campus point-person on a mental health and wellness at Stanford for students, staff and faculty and the new CAPS Director must take this into account in developing their vision for the future of student wellness at Stanford. By the end of spring quarter, as soon as the final director is chosen we will meet with them to begin the process of developing a comprehensive vision. We must include better intermediate care models, better crisis response, and better services for graduate students and communities of color as part of our vision.
