We Are Here for You
In the wake of the shooting at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch, remember that the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center is here year-round for members of the University community who are grieving or need support in coping with news of violence aimed at members of their faith or any other community that is important to their identity. We stand, as always, with all of our students, alums and colleagues working to create a respectful culture on Grounds and across the world. And we want to remind all UVA students, as well as the faculty, staff and parents across the University community who care about them, that we are here to provide support and information about available resources.
At the Women’s Center, we provide ongoing counseling services for members of the University community. We also offer one-time consultation services for anyone who feels the need to discuss concerns or reactions to events in the news. If you feel a consultation or counseling might be helpful, please call our counseling line at (434) 982-2252, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and we will be glad to respond. If you feel you are in crisis, however, please do not leave a message as it is important to seek immediate help. Instead please call 911, walk in to the UVA Emergency Room, or call Region Ten Crisis at (434) 972-1800. UVA students can also walk in to CAPS, or call (434) 243-5150 (after hours, (434) 972-7004).
