How do I talk about what no one wants to talk about?
November 16, 2016
Race. Religion. Change. More change. Is there a safe space to talk about politics? Bullying? Hate? There is. A new program that our counseling center has created does just that. We have a initiative that is focused on providing support, psycho-educational content, curriculum and an avenue to process our changing climate when it comes to topics that are necessary to talk about...even when no one else wants to address them. Growing up you may have been told not to discuss politics and religion? What is everyone discussing on your social media platform? Politics and religion. How does that effect your daily life? What are the things inside that you want to discuss but you are fearful of saying the wrong thing or losing friends? Maybe you re someone who has been saying the same thing for years but you feel unheard? Michener Associates Counseling Center hears you and welcomes your voice, your emotions and your thoughts. We also want to provide mental health strategies to protect your wellness as we navigate solutions together.
