333 East Campus Mall
This group provides a supportive space for survivors to process their experiences, express themselves creatively through art, and craft tools to facilitate in coping like grounding stones, calming jars, and more! Our hope is that participants gain and take these tools with them for coping outside of this space. No artistic skill or experience is required; just an openness to expressing oneself and connecting with others in new and creative ways. All survivors are welcomed!
**Students interested in this group will have the opportunity to first meet with the group facilitators to learn more about the group and determine if it feels like a good fit for their needs. The group will begin meeting weekly once a sufficient number of members have joined, and will run through the duration of the semester.
If you are interested in attending this group please email Mary Eldridge at firstname.lastname@example.org
