 Tuesday, October 23

Today we mourn the loss of Lauren McCluskey, a member of our campus community and University of Utah family. We are thinking of Lauren, her family and friends, fellow student peers and athletes, and larger community affected by last night's senseless act.

If you are hurting today, please know there are resources available on campus ready to support you. This includes the University Counseling Center (UCC), Women's Resource Center, and the Employee Assistance Program. UCC is providing counselors in their Mindfulness Center today (SSB 344), as well as the residence halls on campus (visit their homepage for times and locations). We would love to help connect you with these support services if you need assistance. Please don't hesitate to call us today - 801-581-7776.

We want to make sure that anyone who has experienced, or is currently experiencing dating or domestic violence has the support they need.  If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call 911. For 24/7 information and support, please call the Domestic Violence Link Line at 1-800-897-5465.  Our CSW Victim-Survivor Advocates (VSAs) are confidential and trained to support students, faculty, and staff who are survivors of, or currently experiencing DV. If you want to speak with a VSA, please reach out to us - 801-581-7776.

We know the impacts of interpersonal violence ripple out and can affect the community surrounding the victim. Our community is a strong one, bounded by shared values of community, care, and compassion. We honor these values in part by supporting our fellow students, staff, and faculty. We encourage you to do the same. Take the time and space to care for yourselves today. If you find yourself or a friend experiencing distress, please seek out any of the support resources mentioned above.

With love and respect ~ the CSW
