The personal counseling staff of Counseling and Career Services will sponsor four groups this fall. All groups are free to UST students.

Grief/Loss Support Group: This group provides a forum for students to share feelings related to experiences of grief or loss. Meet with others in a safe and supportive atmosphere and gain a better understanding of how to manage through emotionally difficult times. The group will meet at 11:30 a.m. Thursdays beginning the second week in October in the Personal Counseling office. Contact Heide Malat or Dr. Colette Kuhn, (651) 962-6780, for further information.

Single Parent’s Support Group: Sometimes being a single parent is exhausting. You may feel isolated, overburdened, unappreciated. This group offers a place to meet with other single parents to talk about common concerns, develop ways to manage time and patience, and just get support. The group will meet at 3 p.m. Wednesdays beginning Oct. 6 in the Personal Counseling office. Contact Dr. Steve Maurer or Jane Rauenhorst, (651) 962-6780, for further information.

Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Student Group: This group provides a forum for gay, lesbian or bisexual students to meet with each other to share experiences and concerns.
