Parents Matter is a free consultation service offered by CAPS (Counseling & Psychological Services), a component of Campus Health Service. Oftentimes, when students are in crisis or are feeling overwhelmed, they turn to their parents for help and advice. Parents may be able to offer reassurance, but are often at a loss as to where to seek further assistance. With this in mind, Parents Matter was created. Parents are a key factor in student success, both academically and personally. We are here to help you help them! Parents of U of A students are welcome to call us at 520-621-3334 or e-mail us at email@example.com with their concerns.
