The tragedy in Orlando can bring up strong feelings of sorrow, anger, fear and helplessness for all of us, but especially for our LGBTQ+ students.  If you or someone you know is having strong reactions, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our counselors.  They will be able to listen and share some ideas about how to manage your emotions about this horrific event.  Students can also call one of these hotlines:  Trevor Project (866) 488-7386, Trans Lifeline (877) 565-8860, Suicide Prevention Hotline (800) 273-8255 or check out these resources


The Body Project

The purpose of The Body Project is to help females establish and maintain a positive body image.  An evidence based eating disorders prevention program, The Body Project endeavors to help participants resist the ultra-thin, unrealistic ideal standard of female beauty prevalent in today's society.  For more information or to schedule The Body Project for your group, contact Jenni Thome, Student Counseling Services at (309) 438-3655.



Friendly Faces

The "Friendly Faces" campaign seeks to increase support for student survivors of sexual assault by training students, faculty and staff to provide a supportive response and how to refer survivors for services.  Please consider becoming a "Friendly Face" and enhance our supportive campus community.  Learn more about Friendly Faces and the Friendly Faces training.  Questions?  Contact Gail Trimpe-Morrow at (309) 438-7948 or gatrimp@ilstu.edu.
