Just a reminder of this event by Sponsored by UB Counseling Services at 5 p.m. today:

Words are wholly inadequate every time an incident of racial violence occurs. This time the violence struck our community on May 14 when there was a mass shooting at Tops Market in Buffalo. 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 service, UBCS 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 (or someone you know) would like support with coping and healing. In response to the mass shooting at the Tops grocery store, we will be hosting a virtual drop-in community conversation that will focus on recognizing and coping with racialized trauma. This gathering will provide an opportunity for the UB community to share how they have been emotionally and psychologically impacted, ways to identify peaceful action, inclusivity, coping and support will be discussed.

Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to participate.
