Daily Happenings at the ACC

Let's Talk at the ACC

Date: Friday, starting August 26
Time: 12 - 2pm
Clinician: Michael Whiteside, LCSW
Description: Let's Talk is a free-of-charge, drop-in mental health consultation for students, either individually or in a group setting. The goal of this service is to allow students to have a safe space where they can meet with a counselor, process some personal challenges or difficulties, have their questions about mental health answered, and relate to a counselor or counselors they can see on a regular basis within the capacity of the CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services) office.

Responding to Incidents of Casual and Everyday Racism

Need a place to talk about feeling discriminated on campus or in the community? Don’t know what to do when someone makes a racial comment about your friends or you? We can help! Please do not hesitate to contact us at the ACC. This service is provided to allow students to share personal experiences of racism and discuss ways of identifying, coping with, and confronting casual and everyday racism in a confidential atmosphere. For appointments and more info, please contact acc@indiana.edu.
