CAPS’ Statement in Response to the Death of George Floyd and Other Racist Events (Black Lives Matter)

 Our communities are hurting because of the re-opening of deep racial wounds on top of the many losses caused by COVID-19. This is causing profound psychological impact and trauma on the  mental health of our communities.  CAPS staff sees you, we support you, and we are here for you. Please reach out if you would like to get support for this or other issues by calling 407-823-2811.
