Personal Counseling Services (PCS) 

Announcements

Personal Counseling Services (PCS) joins the rest of our Edgewood College community in expressing our grief, sorrow, and compassion to all those who have been impacted by the race-based tragedies that have been occurring across the nation. While these tragedies can be traumatizing for all of us, we recognize that they may be especially injurious to members of our Black, African American, and other communities of color. In the aftermath of trauma, it is normal to experience a range of emotions such as shock, fear, sadness, anger, or guilt. PCS is committed to affirming and providing care for students who have been impacted. If you would like support, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're here for you.
