The staff of the Texas State Counseling Center are committed to the continued development of awareness and appreciation for individual differences within our diverse university community. We value diversity among our staff and clients and endeavor to be a positive force on campus as students, staff and faculty explore their own identities and beliefs about diversity. It is our intention that the Counseling Center be an emotionally safe and respectful environment for members of the Texas State community. To this end, we strive to provide quality services which are sensitive to diversity of all kinds including age, gender, race, ethnicity, ability, religion, sexual and gender identities, and values.
Response to Social Injustices
In light of recent events that again highlight continued racism, discrimination, oppression, and systemic violence around the nation, the Counseling Center would like to reaffirm our role as a supportive resource to the Texas State University community. We understand that these tragic and traumatic events will impact some students more deeply. Talking about events, acknowledging the resulting feelings, and focusing on helping others may assist with reducing the negative emotional impact. Talking with a mental health professional can also be a useful step in addressing the resulting anger, pain, and confusion.
