Election Support 

During election season we may often feel like we are holding our breath, trying to find time to check facts, critically analysis rhetoric and then make informed and educated decisions on what is best for our futures and the future of our country.  As we engage this season it is just as important to balance our self-care, our need for rest, reflect, and recharge.  We are offering Present Moments sessions, DEConnect drop-in times to chat and connect as well as partner with the Student Counseling Services on support for students most impacted by our current local and nation environment. 

 Below is what we are offering:
