Counseling Services Available for Campus Community

As students, faculty and staff return to the Hattiesburg campus, Student Counseling Services reminds the university community that we are here to assist.

Immediately after a tragic natural event, most focus is on basic needs. However, after schedules return to normal and expectations increase, some may have difficulty managing their own stress and anxiety associated with loss and fear of the recent tornado.

It is our experience that we can help each other if we are willing to listen, offer strategies and solutions for dealing with problems and encourage a return to normal activities. In addition, engaging in meaningful service activity can be very beneficial.

Students, faculty or staff having difficulty coping with the recent weather event or who have concerns about others are encouraged to call 601.266.4829 or email counseling@usm.edu for assessment and assistance. Free, confidential consultation is available for the entire Hattiesburg campus community.
