RCC offers free personal counseling & support groups

October 5, 2020

Could you use some support?

RCC Counseling is offering two support groups this term. See below for details about the groups, which begin meeting this week.

Prefer to talk one-on-one? Free personal counseling is available to all RCC students. Students can meet with counselors via Zoom or phone during normal working hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. To set an appointment, email or call 541-956-7192 (Redwood Campus) or 541-245-7552 (Riverside or Table Rock).

Fire Trauma Support Group

The fires in our community have had a significant impact on stress levels and access to basic needs and the ability to cope. It is natural and normal to notice a heightened stress response during this time, but that does not mean that it is easy to cope with this experience.

Julia Fisher, a counselor at RCC, is offering a free support group for students feeling the emotional impact of the fires. The focus of the group will be to offer support, stress relief, community, connect students with one another and offer resources.

Starting Monday, Oct. 5, the group will meet weekly every Monday from 2– 3 p.m. using this Zoom link.

If you are calling in, please call in at (669) 900-6833. If you are having trouble with the link, use the meeting ID number which is 957 0532 8622 and the passcode is 729254.  Students are welcome to join in at any time. 
Because this is a counseling group, we ask that you complete the Consent to Tele-Health form and the Informed Consent form. Email those completed forms to preferably ahead of the session you plan to attend.

Life After Loss: Grief Support Group

A six-week group for those grieving the death of a loved one.

Grief is about loss, and loss comes in many forms – death being just one of them. Regardless of the type of loss you’ve experienced, your grief is real. Grief often brings along with it a myriad of feelings that may be difficult or confusing for you. Some of the most common reactions to loss are: Feelings of loneliness and isolation, loss of control of your thoughts and feelings, feeling like you’re “going crazy,” difficulty concentrating, guilt, remorse or constant anxiety over what you could have done differently.

This group will meet online Tuesdays, Oct. 8 - Nov. 12 from 2-3:30 p.m. Pre-registration is required, call 541-245-7670.
