The Georgia Tech Counseling Center (GTCC) stands in solidarity with Asian-American communities to condemn anti-Asian racism in all forms, particularly the recent rise of anti-Asian hate and hateful rhetoric in the metro Atlanta area and throughout the country. We express condolences to those affected by hate, intimidation, threats, and violence and condemn such acts. The Counseling Center continues to offer support, and we encourage students to reach out to GTCC for additional support and resources.
The Counseling Center supports all campus constituencies through the provision of numerous self-help resources which we list below. If you would like support for your mental health and well-being beyond what these resources can provide, the Counseling Center has services to allow for additional exploration and discussion to support your mental health needs. In addition, we recognize that mental health can often be supported and enhanced by taking action in the world.
