I NEED A MINUTE is a support group that allows Black students to share their experiences and offer encouragement to each other for the purpose of support and building a sense of community.

COVID-19 Support Group
COVID-19 has become a household term and as shifted the way many students live their everyday lives. This COVID-19 Support Group serves as a support for students to discuss how the pandemic has affected them mentally, emotionally and/or physically. This group is open to TN Tech students only and registration on the Eagle Wellness Portal is required. To get information, including Zoom info, please contact Shonta: email@example.com. TBA
LGBTQI+ Support Group
Many LGBTQ+ individuals experience negative mental health issues due to the prejudice and other biases they face- even the act of coming out is surrounded by fear for many. In fact, research suggests that queer people experience mental health conditions at a rate almost 3 times higher than the general population.
Without mental health we cannot be healthy. It is our hope that LGBTQ+ individuals find this support group to be a safe outlet for them to discuss these challenges and find a sense of community online. We want LGBTQ+ students at Tech to not just make it through their time here, but to flourish- you are worthy of a full and free life.
This group is open to anyone who identifies anywhere on the LGBTQ+ spectrum, including those who don’t know what that means for them! Participants are welcome to come and be accepted as themselves.
For info. about this group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
**Please email to The Counseling Center at email@example.com to obtain Zoom Meeting ID and Passcodes or group and workshop presenters directly.
