Student Health and Counseling (SHAC)

Special Message on Recent Events:

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. - Martin Luther King Jr.

As we all cope with the ripple effects of the recent shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, as well as the attacks on police officers in Dallas, we at SHAC want to voice our solidarity and communicate to the entire Carleton College community that we are also broken-hearted and share the pain, fear, and confusion that you may be feeling. We encourage you to reach out to people you can trust and who can support you in coping with reactions to these recent events. We also encourage you to know your limits and allow yourself permission to set boundaries in conversation and around social media so that you can take care of yourself.



Medical and Counseling appointments are unavailable during summer break.
