A Message from the JHU Counseling Center
All of us are in the position of needing to figure out how to best cope with the many tragic, upsetting and unjust events that have been occurring all too frequently in our country and around the world. We frequently have to deal with an intense mix of feelings about events such as the killings of young black men, the shootings of police officers, mass shootings, and/or brutal acts of terrorism in the U.S. and abroad. Any one of these, and all of these combined, can have traumatic effects on us. We offer the Counseling Center as a place for students to express and sort through your feelings, receive support, and work to help you strengthen your ability to take care of yourself. Please click here on the following for information about trauma and for suggestions for adaptive coping.
