Social, emotional and spiritual health drop-in sessions

ASU Counseling Services wants to support every aspect of your wellness. A collaborative team of mental health practitioners, professors, yoga and meditation instructors, and spiritual leaders across the community have joined forces to deliver virtual, psycho-educational, drop-in webinars every day at no cost to you. Each webinar is focused on helping you thrive during this time of transition.

These daily, 60-minute drop-in sessions are designed to assist with coping, by providing discussion and skills for those in attendance. These sessions do not provide mental health treatment. If you would like to speak with an ASU counselor, call us at (480) 965-6146. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please contact 911 or EMPACT at (480) 921-1006 for emergency mental health services.

The Devils 4 Devils Support Circle is a peer-led, peer-based, online platform for students to support and connect with each other while taking online classes and practicing social distancing.  Through Zoom, students will meet to describe their experiences with digital learning and remote relationships, learn how other students are responding to these changes and receive understanding, helpful information and suggestions. 

Devils 4 Devils Support Circle Zoom sessions will be hosted by a Devils 4 Devils student facilitator.  All students who participate in a support circle will be provided with information on how to access ASU Counseling Services for therapeutic needs.
