Continued Support Related to April 30
No matter where you were on April 30, as a member of Niner Nation, you were most likely impacted in some way by the violent act that occurred in a space that we all assume to be safe -- a classroom, on our campus, in our community. The death of two and the injuring of four students on April 30, 2019 is something that is now part of UNC Charlotte’s history. Even if you weren’t yet a Niner, this violence may still impact you.
To navigate the continued impact of this violence and trauma, perhaps you sought the help of a professional counselor or from your own support system. Please know that it can take some people longer than others to begin to feel “normal” and safe again and that is okay. And, if you are struggling, we encourage you to use the information below to try to understand your reaction and consider resources for seeking help.
