Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) counselors have heard from students throughout this election cycle about the impact the rhetoric and conversations are having on their lives, their stress levels and their emotional wellness.
CAPS is working with the Dean of Students office and various advising offices on-campus to find spaces for students to process their reactions to yesterday's election and in some of them there will be counselors available.
For updated information about where students can have a space to talk about their thoughts and feelings about this election on themselves, their communities and the campus and a whole, please continue to check the Berkeley Diversity Facebook page and/or the Centers for Educational Justice & Community Engagement (EJCE) list of gatherings.
These communities may continue to send out messaging through their respective listserves so stay connected through their channels or call CAPS if you have questions. We are hoping these are spaces for students to have a place to talk about their thoughts and feelings about this election on themselves, their communities and the campus as a whole.
CAPS is dedicated to supporting students and if you are having reactions which is causing significant impairment to your health please feel free to come talk to one of our counselors during our crisis drop-in times Monday-Friday from 10am-5pm.
