Student Health Services is closed for Winter Break from Dec 25 - Jan 26

Student Health Services is here for you...

Student Health Services (SHS) provides students with confidential medical services, crisis and short-term personal counseling, and referrals to community resources. Appointments can be made for acute illnesses and well care (including physical assessments and immunizations), routine laboratory tests, women's and men's reproductive health needs, and personal counseling. Many services are provided free of charge to enrolled students; nominal charges apply for lab testing, medications, and immunizations. For minor injuries and crisis situations, walk-in patients are prioritized as appropriate.

In the aftermath of a mass shooting tragedy, it’s normal to feel sadness, anxiety, fear, anger or any mix of these emotions. We encourage people to reach out to family, friends or counselors to express their feelings and explore effective and healthy ways to cope with their emotions. In the next few days and weeks, it will be important to look out for each other – be particularly aware of warning signs that someone is feeling hopeless or acute distress. The signs could include withdrawing and isolating oneself, not sleeping or sleeping all the time, increased use of drugs or alcohol and talking about death or dying.

If you or someone you know is experiencing signs of distress, please reach out to a mental health professional or get anonymous, free support by texting START to Crisis Text Line at 741-741 

At a time like this, the simple things will help – don’t hold feelings in, talk to friends, family and loved ones. Turn off the TV, computer and phone. Get up and get out – tragedies can weigh so heavily on us that it makes it hard to move. Take a walk, go to the gym, run errands, spend time with friends, volunteer to help. And lastly, everyone should take care of themselves and those around them – physical health and emotional connectedness can go a long way toward making you feel like yourself again.

The Jed Foundation embraces the community ideals that make humanity marvelous – connectedness, inclusion, diversity, acceptance, and compassion – it is our hope that these ideals provide the template for healing. Love is louder than violence, hate and pain.
