While atrocities are committed all over the world on a daily basis, some incidents hit us harder than others.

In the wake of horrific events like terror attacks and mass shootings, many of us are compelled to reach out to our friends, our family, and our community to grieve, receive support, and show solidarity. Cal Poly Pomona offers multiple venues of support, and is committed to taking care of all the members of our university family.

If you are experiencing emotional or mental distress, or simply wish to connect with others in the aftermath of a tragedy, know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE, and help is available. Here is a list of campus services available to you:
