Grief and Campus Counseling Services

Grief is a complicated emotion that affects us in many different ways.** It can be messy, confusing, prolonged, consuming and can sneak up on us at odd times. Grief can make us think differently about the world around us, about our safety and our loved ones. It can be all of these things, or none of them. It can change with time.

As we near the end of a very difficult week, Lauderdale Center for Student Health and Counseling would like to offer a list of resources for you to refer to now, or in the future. We would also like to encourage you to look after one another, pay attention to the signs and signals associated with prolonged grief, and to seek support whenever you are are in need.

As this semester continues we hope that you will pay attention to your own internal cues for stress, anxiety, depression and grief and, instead of struggling alone, will look to us for support and guidance.  We also hope that you will look out for one another, share your concern, and alert someone who can help.

You are never alone.
