Health & Wellness

We care about your well-being.

If you are in need of mental, emotional or behavioral support, we can help. We offer four ways to connect to health and wellness resources including individual sessions with therapists and group sessions. The ISRC also recommends services to students from immigrant and refugee backgrounds outside of the University that are available to all students, regardless of immigration status. Waivers are available to cover the costs of using CAPS services at the UA. Please stop by our center or any of the UA cultural and resource centers to request a waiver from a staff member.
