Human Resources and the mental health therapist employee counseling center join the rest of the University of Kentucky community in expressing our grief, sorrow and compassion to all those who have been impacted by the race-based tragedies that have been occurring across our nation.
These tragedies reflect a longstanding and entrenched history of structural and systemic injustice that we condemn and are dedicated to addressing. While these tragedies can be traumatizing for all of us, we recognize that they may be especially injurious to members of our Black and African-American community.
In the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing trauma, it is normal to experience a range of feelings and emotions, such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, helplessness or guilt. As a mental health service, our therapists are committed to affirming and providing care for all faculty and staff who have been directly or vicariously impacted by trauma. We encourage you to contact our office if you (or a colleague/coworker) would like support with coping and healing.
