Support Spaces for Fall 2021

CSDC is offering a variety of virtual Drop-In Support Spaces during the first half of the Fall 2021 semester. These virtual 1-hour group sessions are meant to bring students together around shared interests or topics, provide a space to share experiences, and foster connection and support.

Drop-In Support Space are free and available to students who are currently enrolled at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa. You do not have to be connected to counseling services at the CSDC to participate in a Drop-In Support Space. Students currently residing outside the state of Hawai’i are welcomed to participate. A registration confirmation and Zoom link to the session will be emailed to students who register using the links below. Students are welcome to register for as many Drop-In Support Spaces as they wish. In the event that a Drop-In Support Space session reaches capacity and cannot accommodate additional registrants, you will be emailed by the facilitator and invited to register for an alternative Drop-In Support Space session.

Please note that CSDC Drop-In Support Spaces are not considered psychotherapy or mental health interventions. These services are not meant to substitute therapeutic services with a licensed mental healthcare provider. Due to the group online format of these events, Drop-In Support Spaces are not considered a confidential service and your identifying information (i.e. Zoom identifier, Zoom profile picture) may be visible to others during the meeting.
