“The UAB Student Counseling Services offers our deepest sympathy to all those affected by the tragic event that occurred in Orlando on Sunday, June 13, 2016. As always, our staff is committed to providing comprehensive, compassionate, and confidential services to all UAB students throughout the school year. We recognize that such times can create feelings of profound confusion, loss, fear, anxiety, and anger. As such, we are available to provide a safe environment for you to process your thoughts/feelings as the days, weeks, and months pass. In addition to regular, ongoing counseling appointments, we also have crisis/urgent care appointments available for those who may be experiencing difficulties in coping. Please contact our office for an appointment at 205.934.5816.”
