Here at Mental Health Services, we recognize that this is a tough time for many, to hold the anxieties and stressors associated with this pandemic, while also balancing roles as students, employees, and family members. This pandemic has also highlighted existing inequities that communities of color face regarding health disparities, access to care, and systemic support. In addition to holding these stressors, we recognize the increase of incidents related to xenophobia, racism, and aggressions towards communities of color, in particular those of Asian descent. We are here to advocate for and support our students of color in managing their experiences of microaggressions, discrimination, and stigmatization. We are still here for you, just in a different way. Many medical, counseling, and wellness services are available by phone and accessible online. For mental health services there are providers within community available to meet provide individual counseling related to intersecting identity concerns, and are planning to offer identity specific virtual group supports in summer 2020. To schedule a mental health access appointment calling 608-265-2600 (option 2).
