Shout out to TUJ Counseling + Resources!
A shout out of appreciation to TUJ counseling, thank you so much for everything!
"Coming to this school was my only option after graduating high school. I didn’t even plan on living long enough to start college, so there was a great lack of planning and caring on my part. I had only applied to one school, this one, so you can imagine my surprise when I found out how convenient and helpful the counselling services were.
There are truly no words capable of expressing how grateful I am to the counselors here. I feel like for the first time I have been heard out and understood. They have helped me find value in my life and my work and I wouldn’t have made it through without them.
Thank you for everything, Aki. "
"TUJ counselling has been an amazing help to my mental state. It’s helped me feel a lot more stable than I was before. If it was not for the counselling office, I would be 4% more unstable and that itself is a really big leap for me.
It is a place where I feel so very heard and validated but also a place where I can find quiet solace. Whatever you may be going through, know that you're not alone. Counselling services are here to help you!"
"Though I haven't been attending TUJ's counseling services for very long, I am shocked by how supportive and understanding the counselors are. I have had poor experiences in the past when trying to seek help, so naturally I was very suspicious when reaching out to TUJ's counseling services for the first time.
I was relieved to find that the counselors really want to help students work through their problems and get them to a better place, which I can't say happens at the other counseling services I've been to. For those thinking about seeking help for any reason, I can't recommend TUJ's counseling office enough."
However you want to get help, you have options!
