ANNOUNCEMENT: Racism and racial trauma are real and exist presently in our country. Today's announcement related to the murder of Breonna Taylor is an example of this ongoing, systemic oppression. To our students, staff, and faculty of color, we see you, we hear you, and we value you. Black Lives Matter.

We acknowledge that we are a mental health resource that is working to become anti-racist and still have much work to do in dismantling our own racism. 

For students, please connect with us for resources related to racial trauma and support
