Health Resources for Black Students
As health professionals, we understand that oppressive and harmful systems have a direct impact on health and well-being. In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing racial injustice and violence, we can experience a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, grief, helplessness and/or guilt. As a service, UHS Mental Health is committed to providing affirming and racial trauma-informed care for all of our students who have been directly or vicariously impacted by trauma.
We encourage you to contact our office if you (or someone you know) would like support with coping and healing. Counselors are available for phone and video counseling appointments. UHS employs mental health professionals trained to support individuals from a wide array of identities, including traditionally marginalized, historically oppressed, or disenfranchised groups.
Call UHS Counseling and Psychological Services at (510) 642-9494 to talk to a counselor
