Support Following a Tragedy

When we are impacted as a nation, a region and a community through such tragic mass violence, it can take a toll on each of us. In general, people are resilient and get through these difficult times. Recent events can create a sense of insecurity, a feeling of being unsafe and feelings of confusion, worry, grief and fear. This can trigger our own past trauma, grief and loss. If you identify as a member of a community impacted, you can feel even more overwhelmed with a variety of responses.

We encourage you to take steps to care for yourself, connect with others around you and, if needed, use the professional supports in our community. Reach out to Counseling & Psychiatry if you need professional support. Counselors will see any student, faculty or staff member at no charge regardless of whether they are currently enrolled in classes. Call 803-777-5223. If a faculty or staff member would like to speak to a professional outside the university, call the Employee Assistance Program at 866-327-2400.
