The tragic events in Oakland have reminded us all that students are vulnerable to many chaotic and senseless events. Feelings of anger, sadness, confusion and frustration are all normal in the wake of such a devastating tragedy. ACI’s student assistance and counseling services are available to help students, family members, faculty and staff in dealing with difficult emotions during this time of grief and fear.
Historically, Spring Break is a time of increase in suicidal threats and calls from troubled students. While many students will identify with the Oakland campus events; overreactions, such as lengthy crying spells, desire to flee, fear for their own lives, and refusal to carry on with daily activities are just a few signs that a student might need special help. ACI’s clinical team can help faculty and staff identify troubled students and refer to the appropriate resources. Student safety and well-being is ACI’s top priority.
For any information, guidance, or assistance, call ACI’s 24/7 helpline at (800) 932-0034 or send a text/email to email@example.com.
