A Message from the Staff of the Counseling Center
The Counseling Center joins in the collective grief and anger surrounding yet another example of racial injustice and anti-Blackness in America. While we continue to mourn the death of Breonna Taylor and work boldly to confront a pandemic of racism and systemic oppression, we are reminded of the physical, mental, and emotional toll racial trauma has on Black students and Students of Color. For those needing support, we are here for you. If you are struggling right now, know there are resources available to help care for yourself and your community.
