Members of our Counseling & Wellness Services Team at the Women's Center offer support groups for UVA students in addition to sessions in which they see individual clients. They also share information about groups being offered by colleagues in other offices across Grounds.

Our Groups 

Please email Cathy Erickson if you are interested in participating one of these groups. Groups will be filled with interested students on a first come first served basis.

Wellness & Connection Group

Join this group for undergraduate UVA students seeking an opportunity to support and connect with each other in a more intentional way while sharing ideas for wellness. We will be doing some engagement activities early in the group to help participants get to know each other and themselves. Students will have an opportunity to share with other group members in a way that promotes healthy vulnerability without feeling overwhelmed.

Fall 2023: This group will start on Friday, September 29th, at 11am at the Women’s Center.

Support Group for Survivors of Sexual Assault 

Female survivors of interpersonal violence who are students at UVA are invited to join this group, which offers survivors a time and space to talk with and support each other. Participants will not be sharing their stories but will discuss what is hard about being a survivor in college and what helps.

Fall 2023: This group will start on Friday, September 29th, at 1 pm.
