Sexual Assault Survivor Support Group

March 05, 2021

Survivors of sexual assault are invited to join this group for peer support and discussion of skills and strategies that aid in healing from a traumatic event.

We will meet on Fridays for 6 weeks, February 12 through March 26.

Please email Cathy Erickson if you are interested in participating. Because this group is support-based and not a therapy group, it is open to UVA students living in Virginia and in other states.

Wellness & Connection Group

March 05, 2021

Wellness & Connection in the Time of COVID

These are unprecedented and uncertain times for college students. Just about everything is different and uncertain right now. Academic life has changed…social life has changed…and even strategies for wellness have had to adjust to the COVID ‘normal’.

Come together with other students to talk about what’s hard, what’s different, and what helps. You'll focus on sharing and supporting each other with some discussion of skills and strategies for improving wellness, too.
