The Counseling Center joins the rest of the Post community in expressing our grief, sorrow and compassion to all those who have been impacted by the race-based tragedies that have been occurring across our nation. These tragedies reflect a longstanding and entrenched history of structural and systemic injustice that we condemn and are dedicated to addressing. While these tragedies can be traumatizing for all of us, we recognize that they may be especially injurious to people of color. As a Center, we are committed to working internally and in connection with campus partners to address these issues.
In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing trauma, it is normal to experience a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness or guilt. As a mental health and wellness service, Post’s Counseling Center is committed to affirming and providing care for all of our students who have been directly or vicariously impacted by trauma. We encourage you to contact our office if you would like support with coping and healing. Additionally, and in collaboration with the Campus Culture Committee, we are working on programming and resources to support our students and campus community.
We affirm the humanity of all Black and African American communities, while also committing ourselves to anti-racist policies and practices. We see you, we hear you, and we stand with you.
With love and solidarity,
The Post University Counseling Staff
