VIRTUAL SUPPORT FOR KIRKWOOD STUDENTS

The current public health crisis continues to test all of us, and college students of all types are facing a unique challenges at this time. Sudden changes to living situations, changes in academic learning format, increased isolation and disconnection from friends, peers, and family, can all be difficult issues for anyone.
 
That's why Tanager Place, an organization that offers support services across the region, will begin a free virtual support group exclusively for Kirkwood students beginning Friday, April 24.
 
Students will be able to:
 
 - Connect with other students seeking connection and support
 - Learn strategies to manage daily stress, coping with the unknown, and manage grief related to COVID-19
 - Improve their ability to balance school, personal life, and relationships
 - Discuss experiences and needs in a safe space
 
The virtual support group happens Fridays at 1 p.m. via Zoom. All Kirkwood students are welcome to join.
 
For information and link to join, contact Molly Rathe at mrathe@tanagerplace.org.
