Student Health & Psychological Services:  Statement on Events in Charlottesville, VA.

The recent events in Charlottesville, VA on August 11 and 12, 2017, have been disturbing and distressing to many in our community and across the country.  Our hearts go out to the loved ones of the woman who was killed and the police officers who lost their lives in a helicopter crash, as well as to those who were injured.  White supremacy, Nazi salutes and flags, the menace of the KKK, and hatred of Jewish people, racial minorities, LGBTQ people, and immigrants were blatant in this confrontation, a "protest" in the name of saving offensive monuments, but  really in the service of hatred.  The CSUDH Student Health & Psychological Services unit deplores and rejects racial and cultural hatred, bigotry, violence, and terrorism, which are incompatible with the ideals of our profession, and humanity itself.  We support inclusion, diversity, multi-culturalism, and social justice.  We strive to provide a place where emotional and complex issues can be discussed in an empathic environment.  We have long known that hatred and bigotry and the perpetuation of racial and bias-motivated violence are harmful to EVERYONE's mental and physical health, including those who espouse it and those who are hurt by it.

Elie Wiesel, the Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor said:  "I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation.  We must always take sides.  Neutrality helps the oppressor.  Never the victim."

Any and all students who have been distressed by this most recent tragic event are invited to come into Student Psychological Services to discuss your feelings about it, and/or similar issues, no matter what your personal or political views may be.  We will help each other get through these difficult times.
