STATEMENT OF SUPPORT
In light of the continued news of oppression and violence across our nation and abroad, the Center for Student Health and Counseling wishes to affirm our commitment to being a supportive resource to the PSU community. SHAC staff believe that prejudice and discrimination are detrimental to individual and community health. We are committed to creating and maintaining an environment where all people of diverse backgrounds and identities can expect to be valued and treated with respect and dignity.
Many of you may be reacting to these alarming events with anger, despair, hopelessness, sadness, fear, confusion, and helplessness. Your reactions are normal, and we encourage you to connect with people you trust who can support you in coping with reactions to these tragic events. We also encourage you to know your limits and allow yourself permission to set boundaries in conversation and with social media so you can take care of yourself.
