Coping with Trauma

Counseling and Mental Health Services continues to provide mental health support and resource information to our UConn community in the wake of trauma. Over this past academic year, Hurricane Sandy, Newtown and the Boston Marathon were high profile tragedies that left many in need of extra support. On a smaller scale, we know our students can often be faced with personal tragedies. In times of need our community extends its compassion and care to one another, and we take seriously our role in that effort.
