Counseling and Psychological Services is here for students directly or indirectly impacted by the events in Syria, including the U.S.-led airstrikes.
As we try to process these events, we acknowledge that many students may be struggling. When these tragedies occur, it is common to feel fear, frustration, anger, sadness and helplessness.
The impact of these events reaches across our country and communities. It is during these times that we should reach out to those in our support system. Our staff is here to provide additional support if needed.
Counseling and Psychological Services staff will be available at the Jackie Gaughan Multicultural Center throughout the week. For more information about available times, please call 402.472.7450 and ask for Jennifer Wendt.
Students are also encouraged to attend our drop-in groups, such as International Student Discussion, Mondays from 3 to 4:30 p.m. in the Selleck Dining Hall executive room, or Get Unstuck, Tuesdays from 3 to 4 p.m. in Benton Hall, room 118.
As always, students can call Counseling and Psychological Services at 402.472.5000 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday to make an appointment or follow the prompts after hours for assistance with urgent concerns.
