Counseling Center Response to Recent U.S. Events

The Counseling Center staff would like to express our deepest regards to the friends, family, and people who have been impacted by the recent events in the U.S. involving terror and violence. We realize this may be a difficult time for those coping with the uncertainty of these events and would like to provide a link to the American Psychological Association’s  Psychology Help Center http://www.apa.org/helpcenter/index.aspx on Managing Distress after Traumatic Events. This website also provides information and links to other resources that may be helpful in this time of need. Also see below information on links that may be helpful. We would like to remind the Roosevelt University Community (including students, faculty, and staff) that counselors are available to talk and provide support during our consultation hour Monday through Thursday 3:30-4:30pm. We are also available if you would like to schedule an appointment to speak with a counselor at 312.341.3548 or you can stop by AUD 470 or SCH 114.
