Statement on the Orlando shootings:

The staff of the Student Health and Wellness Center have been following the horrific events that occurred early Sunday morning on 6/12/16 at Pulse, a venue that serves as an educational and social hub of the LGBTQ community in Orlando. Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the victims of this senseless crime. The mass casualties at Pulse are greatly disturbing to the entire world but have had a particularly hard-hitting impact on members of the LGBTQ community and their families and allies. Events such as these, whether near or far, can generate many difficult emotions, including fear, sadness, despair, grief, anger, helplessness, and confusion. Please know that you are not alone. 

If you are struggling with the emotional impacts of this incident and would like to talk with a counselor, please walk-in or call us at 541-552-6136 during our summer hours: Monday (9-4), Wednesday (9-3), and Thursday (9-4). If you cannot reach a SHWC staff member, you may also contact the Office of Student Support and Intervention at 541-552-6221 to seek support.  If you’re in significant distress and it is after-hours, you may contact the Helpline at 541-779-4357 or Jackson County Mental Health Crisis at 541-774-8201.  Additional resource:
