The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade removes the constitutional right to an abortion. The University of Illinois Counseling Center understands that many in our campus community may be feeling anger, fear, anxiety, and other negative emotions. These are normal and justified reactions. Being someone who identifies as a minority that has been historically oppressed, having a history of trauma, or feeling the weight of the current sociopolitical climate may cause these emotions to feel even stronger.
As a confidential resource, the Counseling Center is here for impacted students. We offer individual and group counseling options. To make an appointment, please call 217-333-3704.
