CAPS Launches New Mental Health Campaign: “It Just Be Like That”
In response to hundreds of student requests for more counselors and a higher budget, Northwestern’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) office has launched a brand new campaign to tackle the pressing issue of mental health on college campuses. The “It Just Be Like That” campaign will be launched by winter quarter at Northwestern, and is aimed to launch at least 20 other college campuses by the end of the year.
The director of CAPS, Tracy Andrews, revealed to Sherman Ave in an interview that this campaign aims to revitalize the Northwestern community with a new “vibe” and the hope to create understanding of when “it really just be like that”. Andrews explained that they would be cutting back on the budget for group therapy and putting those funds into “IJBLT” groups for students who feel that on a daily basis, “it just be like that”. Andrews stated that these new groups will be led by local “counselors”. Upon further investigation, Sherman Ave has discovered that these counselors are actually just ETHS students with meme accounts.
Students have been asking for an expansion of CAPS for years, so this just might be the answer. The answer to what? We’re not so sure. But hey, sometimes… it just be like that.
