Welcome to the Counseling Center

The Counseling Center stands in solidarity with the Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander communities in the face of the most recent attacks and other acts of anti-Asian bias.  These acts of hate, in the context of the global pandemic, pandemic-related racist rhetoric, the attack on the US Capitol and acts of racial violence against African-Americans are undoubtedly impacting the mental health and well-being of our UNCG community.  Direct and indirect exposure to such events can be troubling, concerning, and traumatizing and result in many emotional reactions. As always, if you are in distress, please know we are here to help. Students may contact The Counseling Center at any time by calling 336-334-5874 or https://shs.uncg.edu/cc

In Response to Race-Related Violence

The UNCG Counseling Center joins the rest of the Spartan community in grieving the acts of violence perpetrated in African-American and Black individuals and communities. As clinicians for social justice, we are committed to advocating for supporting those who have been oppressed and marginalized. We recognize the impact that relentless prejudice, racism, stereotyping, and discrimination have on mental health and well-being. In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing a trauma, and the experience of vicarious trauma, it is normal to have a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, anxiety, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness or guilt. If you need to talk, receive support, or want a space to grieve, we encourage you to connect with The Counseling Center (336-334-5874). Know that you are not alone.
