Counseling and Crisis Support During Break (and Anytime CWC is Closed)

submitted by phalp1@augsburg.edu

For many the holiday season can be one of rest and joy, while for others it can be a time of stress, sadness, and loneliness. Knowing this, and in anticipation of the long winter break during which the CWC office is closed, we wanted to remind the campus community of an important source of support available when our office is closed (for long breaks as well as simply during weekends and evenings). Any time CWC is closed, phone counseling and crisis support are available to students by calling CWC’s main line (612-330-1707) and pressing #1. We urge you to use this resource now, during the break, and any time it might be useful during the academic year. And we wish you a break that is what you need it to be.
