Helping Give Away Psychological Science, HGAPS, is a nonprofit corporation, spun off from a UNC student service club, that aims to gather and provide web based access to information and resources related to mental health topics such as COVID-19 info and coping resources, managing social isolation, and offers some suggestions for clients for teletherapy.
