Counseling resources and meetings happening today (UPDATED)
Administrators, counselors, and students are available on campus all day to speak with students grieving or otherwise affected by first-year Martha Corey-Ochoa’s death on Monday night. Below is a list of some of those resources. If you know of others, please let us know in the comments or at email@example.com and we will add it.
Update: The Student Wellness Project will facilitate a conversation with first-years and upperclassmen from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in John Jay Lounge. There will be a wall to share one’s feelings anonymously on Post-It notes, and break-out groups to discuss Corey-Ochoa’s death or whatever else may be on students’ minds. New and returning students are encouraged to come. Snacks will be served, but students—especially those on the NSOP schedule—are welcome to grab their dinner in John Jay Dining Hall and migrate to the Lounge. Upperclassmen who would like to be facilitators should arrive at John Jay Lounge between 4:30 and 5 p.m.
From Wilfred Chan, SWP chair: “We fellow students know that so much has happened in the past couple of days, and freshman move-in can be one of the most stressful times of the year. Given last night’s tragedy, many upperclassmen would like to provide our support.”
The Student Wellness Project will be holding an open meeting at 1 p.m. 1:45 p.m. in the Lerner SGO, 5th floor. SWP was formed last year out of the campus response to a student suicide.
[Edited: An earlier version of this post mentioned a meeting with Dean Terry Martinez. That meeting is not open to all students.]
