Health & Safety: Selected Jacobs School of Music Resources
Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) Counselor-in-Residence Program
The Jacobs School of Music has partnered with the IU Health Center’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) to staff a counselor onsite at the Jacobs School part-time.
Brad Stepp, a clinical psychologist with the IU Health Center, is stationed at Jacobs 20 hours per week. Students will still make appointments through the Health Center, but Stepp also will have drop-in hours and will spend time conducting outreach, such as educational seminars and workshops for students. Information about services, hours, cost, and contact information is available here.
