Psychological support regarding federal executive orders

We Welcome All
January 30, 2017

The federal executive order restricting travel and immigration has understandably evoked reactions among many Berkeley students and staff. We are particularly concerned about the impact for our international, Muslim and undocumented students. Whether these actions are directly affecting you or someone you care about, we want to make sure you find the support you need.
