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.

Health Alert

Beginning March 23, The Counseling Center will be shifting services for UNCG students to remote telemental health. If you are currently scheduled for an appointment, your counselor will reach out to you. If you have any questions, concerns, or are in need of support, please contact The Counseling Center by phone (336-334-5874). Please visit the Counseling Center Covid-19 News and Updates for additional resources to support your mental health and wellbeing.
