Support During a Pandemic of Racism

Many of us are experiencing a range of emotions with the recent and ongoing racial injustices and violence toward Black people, and other people of color. We know this is taking a psychological toll on us as individuals and as a community. Please reach out if you need support. We stand with you.

The University Counseling Center wants to explicitly and unequivocally express our solidarity and support of our Black students, colleagues, and community members on campus, in Eugene/Springfield, and across the globe. Black lives matter. It is important to say this and name this as a recognition of the historical and systemic oppression and loss of life experienced by our Black community. The low number of Black community members within the state of Oregon reflects the severe, negative, and long-term impacts of violent and racist practices. There is no denying history. There is no forgetting of lives lost. We are here to be part of the change. We are here as a community. We are here as Ducks. If one of us is hurting, all of us are hurting.

Counseling Center COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates

Updated July 1, 2020

We care about your mental health, especially in this stressful time. We are working to provide as many remote mental health services and resources as possible while also ensuring in-person support is available to students in Eugene.

The following services are available to students:

  • In-person drop-in and other counseling services in the University Health, Counseling, and Testing Center building
  • Teletherapy services (i.e., videoconferencing) for students in Oregon, Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New York, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington
  • Consultation with case managers to help students figure out how to find mental health support in your area
  • In-the-moment support 24/7 over the phone, regardless of location. Call 541-346-3227. If we're open our front desk will connect you with a mental health professional; if we're closed press "1" to be connected to our After-hours Support and Crisis Line.
  • Assess your wellbeing with a brief mental health screening tool to help students decide whether further evaluation or support may be recommended.

Note: Screenings will take place for ALL persons entering the building. This includes individuals with appointments at the University Health Center, the University Counseling Center, and the University Testing Center.

If you have any questions about your options for mental health support, call the Counseling Center at 541-346-3227. We will have the next available counselor return your call to discuss your options and to answer your questions.

We also have a variety of online mental health resources on our website, including our Self-Care Kit, Be Well Blog, and Duck Tails Podcast. Our outreach staff is able to coordinate educational workshops for your classes or student groups.

Here Whenever You Need Us

Your college experience is one of growth and learning. We all face a variety of challenges and obstacles in college and in life. You may come across moments that are not easy to talk about—struggling academically, navigating personal relationships, what it's like to live with mental health concerns. It can seem like you are the only one dealing with these issues, but you are not alone. We have a team that cares deeply about your development and success. We are here to support you through the challenges and celebrate your successes.

 

CARE IN ITS MANY FORMS

We understand that care and support comes in many different forms and environments. Getting support is different for everyone. It could look like talking one-on-one with someone or attending a workshop. We are here to help you identify strategies that work best for you so that you can be successful during your time at the UO.
