Recent Events and Racial Trauma
CHW is holding all individuals and communities impacted by systemic racism and resulting violence and discrimination in our hearts. We are here to support students as they work on personal and societal levels to address the traumatic impacts of racism, oppression, and injustice. If you are a student and experiencing distress related to the ongoing violence toward Black-identified individuals or the impact of resulting protests and unrest, CHW staff are here for you. We are ready to listen to you, support you, talk about self-care options for coping with racial trauma, and help you identify healing spaces. Taking care of your emotional and physical well-being is critical at this time.
Should you want to make a counseling or medical appointment, please see additional information on this page or call 617-573-8226. You may also be interested in CHW and other self-help pages which provide information about racial trauma and coping as well as information about local community groups and educational resources. Students wanting to connect with other students who share a similar identity may want to reach out to the Center for Student Diversity Inclusion which is working with student groups to create spaces for processing and support. The Suffolk Interfaith Center is another campus resource available to students seeking spiritual support.
Suffolk University and CHW are committed to providing support and lifting the voices of those impacted by structural racism and violence. You are not alone.
