What to Expect
Groups are a helpful option for connecting with other people who may experience similar feelings, thoughts, or struggles. A group is safe and confidential space to get support and learn ways of coping with stressors, mental health symptoms, or better understand yourself.
Workshops are focused on introducing and practicing techniques and skills to support your wellbeing.
Groups and workshops are no cost for students attending at least one UAS course and do not count toward the 6 sessions per semester limit for individual counseling. If you decide to attend a group or a workshop offered through Zoom, please be mindful of the location that you Zoom from and choose a quiet, private space.
