Racial and Social Justice are Mental Health Needs
The Counseling Center staff recognize there may be an increased need for Mental Health Resources for Students Impacted by Racial Injustice. We wish to express our grief, sorrow and compassion to students hurting due to race-based tragedies occurring across our nation. As mental health providers, we acknowledge the very real harm racism causes to the emotional and physical health of Black people. We have witnessed the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on Black communities and among communities of color. We are committed to affirming and providing care for all of our students who have been directly or vicariously impacted by trauma caused by racism, bigotry, prejudice and indifference. We assert that there is no true mental health where there is systemic inequity and hatred.
