Students are adults and must schedule their own appointments. However, an SCC counselor can help you figure out how to talk with your student about your concerns and, when indicated, encourage scheduling an appointment at the SCC.

how to talk about your concerns

The Student Counseling Center joins the rest of the SPU community in expressing our grief, sorrow and compassion to all who have been, and continue to be, impacted by the race-based violence occurring across our nation. These violent incidents reflect a longstanding and entrenched history of structural and systemic injustice that we condemn and are dedicated to addressing. While these tragedies can be traumatizing for all of us, we recognize that they may be especially painful and injurious to members of our community who identify as Black or African-American. In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing trauma, it is normal to experience a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness and/or guilt. As a mental health service, the SCC is committed to affirming and providing support for all of our students who have been directly or vicariously impacted by experiences of racism, discrimination, prejudice, bigotry, stereotyping and/or violence. We encourage you to contact our office if you (or someone you know) would like support with processing and coping with recent and/or past experiences of trauma or any other mental or emotional health concerns.
