Support Spaces

Support spaces, also referred to as affinity spaces, are drop-in support spaces held during Fall and Spring semesters. In these spaces, you can connect with your peers, share experiences, and recieve support. Support spaces can be utilized throughout the semester, whether you are seeking services at CPS or not, or as you wait to get connected to services. Students do not have to be a current CPS client to attend. This service does not replace individual or group mental health treatment. Learn about our current support spaces below.
