To Asian and Asian American Pacific Islander Student Organization Presidents:
As Dean of Students at Cal State Fullerton, I stand in unity with you, our Asian and Asian American Pacific Islander (AAAPI) students, student organizations, communities, colleagues, and loved ones.
As Vice President Oseguera and I conveyed in a prior message to students, CSUF stands in unity with you. Recent anti-Asian hate incidents show that more must be done to protect the AAAPI community against blatant acts of racism and violence. Such behavior towards the community needs to stop now. We must stop Asian hate. We are here with you, advocates for you, and will do all we can to support you. We are grateful for your resilience, leadership, partnership, and support that your organizations provide to many of our AAAPI Titans and beyond.
With all that said, I want to remind you that during this difficult time, it is important to continue to take care of yourself, your loved ones, and your organization members. Below are several resources that may be useful for yourself or others:

Welcome to Counseling & Psychological Services
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) provides a variety of clinical services designed to meet the many different concerns experienced by CSUF students. The clinical needs of students range from normative developmental changes to more serious emerging or on-going mental health concerns; from a disrupting life event to a life-threatening crisis; or from supportive counseling and psychoeducation to ongoing psychotherapy. Our licensed clinical staff is specifically trained in college student mental health therapeutic approaches and committed to providing professional services that meet the specific needs of undergraduate and graduate students. CAPS takes pride in being an agency that operates from multicultural, multidisciplinary, and multi-theoretical perspectives. Our clinical staff and trainees represent a wide range of individual and social identities and experiences; are a combination of Licensed Psychologists, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors, Certified Life Coach, Board Certified Psychiatrist, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, and Licensed Clinical Social Workers; and have training in numerous treatment modalities and theoretical perspectives. This rich diversity in people and practice provides opportunities for CSUF students to connect with a clinician and receive treatment in a manner that is a fit for both the person and their clinical need.
We have been following the news closely and we know that many of you have as well. We want you to know that we at Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) are devastated and our hearts break while we watch the anti-Black violence occur across our country. We also want you to know that we are here for you.
