Christie Campus Health Extends Strong Support to Students

We at Christie Campus Health acknowledge that the tragic events the nation is facing will certainly impact the campus experience for all college students, but especially for young Black Americans.

Many students will be returning to campus with heightened levels of fear, uncertainty, stress, and anxiety that could hinder their ability to feel accepted and supported. We believe that every student on campuses across America should have the emotional and behavioral support they need to complete their college experience and thrive as healthy young adults, safely and happily. We extend our strong support to students, their families and college and university faculty and staff members throughout the country – and particularly to students, faculty and staff members of color for whom the tragic deaths of unarmed Black lives is so personally experienced.

With Sincerity,

The Christie Campus Team
