Concerns we address


"The Retreat" Newsletter

Counseling Center Statement of Solidarity in Response to Domestic Terrorism in Buffalo, New York

Words are wholly inadequate every time this occurs.  Yet we cannot remain silent in the face of persistent inaction in response to domestic terrorism, racist violence, and an epidemic of death from the accessibility of firearms in our land of highly selective liberty.  We condemn all who continue to contribute to a racist climate by perpetuating myths such as “white replacement” that provide kindling wood for fires like that in Buffalo that threaten to burn down the house of our nation.  Our hearts go out to all who are directly impacted by this and other mass shootings, and to all who feel less safe and less trusting today.  Counseling Center counselors are here for those who wish to process their experiences.  And we urge all to reach out to those who can offer comfort and support in the days ahead.

Counseling Center Statement on Ukraine

Counseling Center Statement on Gender-Based Violence

News of gender-based violence occurring in our community can be challenging for us all, especially for those with a personal history of trauma. Here are additional resources that may be helpful. Give us a call at 410-617-2273 Monday through Friday from 8:30 am until 5 pm to speak with a counselor. Additional support is available with our after-hours counselors at 410-617-5530.

Counseling Center Statement on Ongoing Racial Injustice and Violence

The Counseling Center joins the rest of the Loyola community in expressing our grief, sorrow and compassion for the racial injustices and tragedies that have been occurring across our nation. These events have impacted all of us and reflect a longstanding and entrenched history of structural and systemic injustice and racism that we condemn and are dedicated to addressing. 

We would like to recognize the reports of hate crimes experienced by the Asian community - particularly in light of COVID-19, locally and nationally. In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing this trauma, it is normal to experience a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness, or guilt. 

Please consider Racial Violence & Injustice resources for people of color and those seeking to promote anti-racism and engage in allyship. You can also find additional resources on Anti-racism and White Accountability and from the Office of Equity and Inclusion

Students may contact us by phone to speak with a counselor or schedule an appointment, Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at 410-617-2273. For support outside our business hours, please call 410-617-5530 to speak with an after-hours counselor. 

Loyola Counseling Center Land Acknowledgement

The staff at the Counseling Center humbly acknowledges and honors the Indigenous communities whose ancestral homelands and resources were stolen and colonized in the creation of this nation, state and campus. We recognize the Piscataway, Nanticoke and Lumbee as past, present, and future caretakers of this land.

A land acknowledgement is a small and insufficient step towards correcting the narrative and injustice of colonialism both past and present. While this small act will never erase the atrocities that have been endured by Indigenous peoples both locally and around the world, it is a part of our ongoing commitment to uplifting the sovereignty of Indigenous communities. We are therefore committed to resisting the oppression that takes many forms, including the attack on mental health, threat to the environment, and continued violence caused by systems of racism.
