BYU Resources

BYU CAPS

BYU CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services) provides a wide variety of mental health resources with an emphasis on creating a confidential and “safe environment for students of diverse age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, relationship status, national origin, immigration status, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, body type, and mental and physical ability.”

Communities

USGA

The USGA (Understanding Sexuality, Gender, and Allyship) is not an official club of BYU but was allowed to meet on campus for a few years (currently they meet at the Provo Public Library every Thursday at 7PM). It is run by current students with a faculty advisory board consisting of current BYU faculty. They aim to offer “a safe space for open, respectful conversation on LGBTQ and SSA topics.”

The OUT Foundation

A non-profit organization seeking to collect experiences of alumni from BYU, BYU-Idaho, BYU-Hawaii, and Ensign College and show support for current queer students on campus.

BYUQ
