Concerning the War in Ukraine

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has become an omnipresent stressor for many of us at Loyola University. Whether you are from Ukraine, or from Russia, or glued to the daily news cycle, you might be experiencing increased feelings of distress. This might look like worried thoughts, trouble sleeping, increased sadness, fatigue, stomach aches, or muscle tension – to name a few stress indicators. You are not alone in these feelings. 

Here are some resources that may be of use to you.

Inclusion Statement

Recent violence, abroad and closer to home, affects all of us. It is natural and reasonable to feel anger, sorrow, despair, fear, powerlessness, defensiveness, frustration, confusion, hopelessness and/or numbness in response to the national and international climate and continued acts of aggression, oppression and brutality. The University Counseling Center recognizes the emotional toll that these events take on our students as individuals and our community as a whole and we are here to help without judgement, assumptions or bias. If you need a safe space to process, or if you want assistance coping, please schedule an appointment.

The UCC acknowledges the continued work of self-reflection, accountability, and openness to others necessary to create a community of inclusiveness, dignity and compassion. As such, we are committed to helping you on this journey, and committed to our own work towards intercultural competency. Please know that you are not alone, and that we are here to listen and to support you.
