Coming Soon!


You Are Not Alone: Intimate Partner Violence and the Virtual Campus
Thursday, October 29 (rescheduled from October 14)  |  4pm | RSVP

An interdisciplinary panel of CUNY SPH experts will discuss best practices for members of the SPH community to protect and support those who are impacted by domestic violence amidst the challenges of COVID-19.


Student Grief Support Group

Wednesdays at 5 pm from 10/21 – 12/9
Student Wellness Counselor Sherry Adams will facilitate an open group in which the vast range of grief responses related to losing a loved one are reviewed, discussed, and validated.  The ways in which COVID-19 restrictions have affected how we grieve will also be addressed.  Students will be provided an opportunity to offer mutual aid to one another as the process of grieving is navigated.  There will also be opportunities for bereaved students to memorialize their lost loved ones in our group setting.  The group will be a safe space for students who are mourning to express their unique experiences and establish connections with supportive peers.  If you would like more information or are interested in joining the group please email Sherry at sherry.adams@sph.cuny.edu


COVID-19 Memorial Page

We recognize that COVID-19 has changed how we say goodbye to and memorialize our dear loved ones. While our mourning traditions might look different they remain so very important. With this understanding, we have created a virtual space for you to honor family member(s) you have lost during the COVID-19 pandemic. With immense sympathy and respect, we invite you to the CUNY SPH In Remembrance page to share your tributes. Your expressions of who your lost family member was and what they meant to you and the world matter to us. Please note that signed consent from an authorized family member is needed prior to tributes being published.  While there may be a physical distance between us, we remain a community with opportunities for mutual support.
