Grieving Together

This group is for students struggling to find their footing after loss, such as: losing someone you love, lost connections, lost experiences, etc. Come find a place to experience community, share the burden, and lighten the load.

Getting Comfortable in Your Own Skin

Self-doubt, insecurity, and perfectionism can keep us isolated and prevent full engagement with life. Research shows that those who accept all aspects of themselves have better relationships and overall life satisfaction. In this group we will discuss ways to increase self-acceptance through mindfulness exercises, addressing ways to cope with negative self-talk, peer support, and identity exploration.
