Statement of Support for Those Affected by Violence and Oppression Domestically and Abroad
You do not need to identify as a survivor or know a victim of violence to experience the emotional and physical effects of violent action. Our mental health services are available for all WFU students, and we remain available as colleagues to Wake Forest staff and faculty who would benefit from consultation. As we collectively support one another as a community, and we invite you to review our Diversity Statement as one affirmation of the University Counseling Center’s commitment to providing nonjudgmental listening and care to all who seek us out. Appointments can be made by calling us at 336-758-5273.
Please see below for additional information on how to care for yourself and others:
- Race-Based Trauma and Self-Care
- Managing Distress in the Aftermath of a Shooting
- Responding to Grief
Our staff of licensed mental health providers, administrative support, and graduate trainees invite you to explore our site to learn more about who we are, the services that we provide to the WFU community, and the resources contained on our webpages.

April 11-15, 2016: The Counseling Center provided daily suicide prevention trainings to continue our efforts to increase our community’s awareness of the signs of distress. Training included information on when and how to intervene and help people who may be thinking of killing themselves. All participants during the week were entered into a raffle to win some sweet prizes. Congrats to Elizabeth Reale (Beats Headphones) and Chloe Holt (Yoga Prize Pack – Yoga mat, Yogitoes towel, Hydroflask water bottle)!
