Help for Loss Survivors
You may be overwhelmed by grief, but you don’t have to suffer alone.
It’s important to know when to ask for help. You should seek help if you have any warning signs, especially if a problem is making it hard for you to get through the day. For assistance, you can come to the counseling center during walk-in hours. You can also call the Lifeline 24/7 at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
Speaking to a therapist or attending a support group can help improve your overall mental health. Currently enrolled students are eligible to receive counseling for free from the Counseling and Psychological Services Center . Individual counseling and group counseling are available. In order to see a counselor, visit the counseling center during walk in hours.
During the Fall and Spring semesters, Walk-In hours are:
Monday - Friday: 8:30am-11:00am and 1pm - 4pm
Attend the Watagua County Finding Hope: Survivor's of Suicide Support Group
