STATUS UPDATE 6/17/20: The Meltzer Center supports the recent statement made by GWU's Office for Diversity, Equity, and Community Engagement (ODECE) regarding the harm against Black Americans from those who currently hold positions of power. The Meltzer Center believes that Black lives matter and we work to create an affirming environment that values providing mental health services that are racially sensitive and culturally aware. We understand the psychologically harmful impact of events regarding police brutality. We have compiled a list of resources, linked below, in the hopes that they can help to ease some of the anxiety, trauma and uncertainty surrounding these challenging times.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us at [email protected].
