Mental health is important. This confidential resource supports JWU students in managing their emotional wellbeing. We offer short-term individual therapy, group therapy, crisis intervention, consultation, and referrals. Stephanie Dixon, director of JWU Providence Counseling Services:
We believe it is critically important for our students to be seen and to be heard during this time. Counseling Services will continue to be a safe and affirming place for students to be seen, to be heard, and to be supported. We are committed to supporting our students and working to effect change in our campus community and beyond. Students are dealing with so much uncertainty right now along with a tremendous amount of emotion and feelings like anger, pain, fear, grief, sadness, to name a only a few. If students feel isolated and are having difficulties coping we would strongly encourage them to reach out for support.

This program allows students to report concerns anonymously to Campus Safety & Security (CS&S), especially when students are nervous about coming forward. Note: this program does not replace the need to contact CS&S directly with information about an emergency or potential harmful situation. During those situations, contact CS&S immediately at 401-598-1103.
The book discussion was facilitated by JWU Librarians: Sarah Campbell, Jenny Castel, Kerry Caparco, and Erika Gearing. We are committed to providing a friendly, safe, and welcoming environment for all attendees.
