Counseling Services is committed to the development of the whole person: intellectually, emotionally, socially, spiritually, and physically.  As part of this commitment, Counseling Services recognizes the need for specific outreach, resources, and engagement of our students who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.  Ongoing incidents of social injustice, racism, and violence in our country and around the world have negative and traumatic impacts for our students, faculty, and staff.  Counseling Services joins the rest of the Stonehill community in expressing our grief, sorrow, and compassion to all those who have been, and continue to be, impacted by racial injustices and tragedies.  

Students of color may face unique challenges in college that can trigger emotional distress.  While our team of clinicians in Counseling Services may not represent all identity backgrounds making up our student body, we are committed to providing a welcoming environment, where all identities, beliefs, and experiences are recognized and valued.   In addition to services we offer on-campus via counseling, case management, crisis intervention, groups, and outreach programming, we have compiled resources here specific to the emotional and mental health needs of students of color.  Additionally, we have included resources for allies in terms of supporting the mental health of students of color.  Students are welcome to meet with Counseling Services for support and to learn more about any of the resources listed below.  

For additional resources and support check out the Office of Intercultural Affairs and the work of the Bias Education Response Team.
