RMU Counseling Center
The RMU Counseling Center acknowledges the historic nature of political events and recognizes that members of our RMU community are experiencing a variety of responses to the election results. We remain committed to maintaining a safe place for students who are feeling marginalized and who would like to talk about the results, potential implications, and personal reactions, regardless of political affiliation.
"Sadly, too often, the stigma around mental health prevents people who need help from seeking it. But that simply doesn't make any sense. Whether an illness affects your heart, your arm or your brain, it's still an illness, and there shouldn't be any distinction. We would never tell someone with a broken leg that they should stop wallowing and get it together. We don't consider taking medication for an ear infection something to be ashamed of. We shouldn't treat mental health conditions any differently. Instead, we should make it clear that getting help isn't a sign of weakness - it's a sign of strength - and we should ensure that people can get the treatment they need." - Michelle Obama
