It has been heartbreaking to learn of the recent devastation and loss of life in Israel and Palestine. The University of Nevada, Reno Counseling Services staff unite with our community, in particular our students, faculty, and staff with connections to the region. We stand against violence and hate, which cause division and create conditions that make inhumanity possible. We are conscious of the far-reaching impacts of this ongoing destruction, death, and suffering. During this time, we hope that the University community can come together and resist division amidst this appalling violence and loss of life. We grow closer together simply by reaching out and engaging in conversations that lead us to a better understanding of ourselves and one another.

BLACK LIVES MATTER
We at the University of Nevada, Reno Counseling Services join the rest of the University community, in particular our Black student leaders and ASUN, in expressing our grief, compassion, anger and heartbreak to all those who are affected and continue to be affected by race-based injustices. As a department dedicated to the alleviation of human suffering and advancement of human well-being, we condemn all acts of violence, racism, prejudice, and hatred against Black and African American individuals and cultures and stand in solidarity against systemic oppression. Mental health professions, such as social work and psychology, have explicit ethical guidelines about promoting social justice. As such, Counseling Services' training, practices, policies, and procedures aim to minimize the disparities so clearly visible in our society at large.
