Hello! My name is Gita, and I use the pronouns she/her/hers. I am a senior majoring in Psychology with a minor in Applied Behavior Science. A lot of my interests revolve around mental health and mental health disorders, whether it be advocacy, awareness or practice itself, specifically if it relates to cross cultural differences. While I am a mental health peer educator at CAPS, I am also a volunteer at Headquarters Counseling Center. So I’m excited to help my peers connect to the right resources both on and off campus. My hobbies include traveling, drawing, jogging, and saving stray ladybugs seeking shelter and warmth in my house in the bitter cold winter.
My name is Olivia and my pronouns are she/her/hers. I am currently a junior double majoring in Social Welfare and Psychology here at KU. I've always been very passionate about mental health care, but recently I have also become more interested in advocacy work as well, which is why I am so excited to be a part of HOPE@CAPS. In addition to working with CAPS, I am a coordinator for an advocacy program at the Center for Community Outreach, serve as the service director of Omega Phi Alpha, and conduct research. In my free time, I enjoy being in nature, watching films at Liberty Hall, and hitting up coffee shops.
Hi! My name is Griffin, and I use the pronouns he/him/his. I'm a second year student studying history in KU's Legal Education Accelerated Degree program.

Mental health is incredibly important everywhere, but particularly at colleges, so I'm very excited to help out KU students and begin contributing to making campus a healthier place to grow and learn.
