Welcome, Bruins!

We welcome all of our new and returning UCLA Bruins! We all are adjusting to a lot of change and uncertainty. The RISE Center is here for you as a resource to help process the uncertainty, and find ways to grow through it.  Check out our Virtual RISE Center that offers live and pre-recorded opportunities for self-care, reflection, connection and restoration! We also have a newly launched Mental Health Leadership Training series for leaders on campus who want to support others in their own journey of resilience. Visit this link for more of our welcome videos to new and returning Bruins. 


ABOUT THE RISE CENTER 

The RISE (Resilience In Your Student Experience) Center, is an affiliate program and physical extension of UCLA’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). The RISE Center is a holistic wellness hub that provides an array of programs, classes, trainings, and self-directed resources to foster and support resilience, connection, and well-being for our UCLA community. Services are free of cost to students and are led by a team of healing practitioners, mental health experts, prevention educators, wellness advisors, and student ambassadors. We champion best practices around equipping students with social-emotional skills, embracing difference and diversity, and elevating the concept of "mental health" as an every-day habit so that students can meet their full capacity for personal success. Our wellness oasis offers inclusive, accessible services such as meditation, yoga, peer coaching, and other mind-body modalities. Please email RISE@caps.ucla.edu to schedule an intake with a resilience advisor or stop by the RISE Center in Lu Valle Commons Basement for more info.
