Art Against Angst

How is art good for me?

Art is a stress-buster.
Chances are you or someone you know is more stressed than they should be. With heavy workloads, financial worries, juggling social obligations, and, dare I say it, a pandemic of historic proportions, how is one supposed to stop and catch their breath? Well, one research-based suggestion is to take a moment to really look at art. Studies have shown that simply viewing art can reduce stress levels in the viewer. While not everyone can afford the time or money to take an art class or visit a museum, UH is blessed with a fabulous collection of public art, easily accessed (for free!) by simply taking a walk around campus. Color Field is one temporary exhibit among many art pieces on display on UH grounds. Learn more about UH’s public art.

Group Counseling Open Recruitment

Group counseling is a popular and beneficial CAPS service. Individuals meet online weekly with other group members and one or two clinicians to explore new ways of coping, behaving and interacting with others. Understanding Self and Others groups are our most utilized groups and are interpersonal process groups that focus on a variety of common concerns. There are no fees for students to participate in a group if they are currently enrolled in classes at the University of Houston.
