Message to Our Community

Standing Against Hatred

We condemn, in the strongest terms, hate and intolerance in all its forms and stand in solidarity with Asian, Asian-American, and Pacific Islander members of our community.  TCS is committed to continuing to listen, offer support, and connect with AAPI students against anti-Asian racism.
 
Acts of hate and racial violence impact the mental health and well-being of our Temple community.  Direct and indirect exposure to such events can be troubling, concerning and traumatizing and result in many emotional reactions.  As always, if you are in distress, please know we are here to help.  Please contact us at 215 - 204 - 7276 and/or click here  to learn about the services we provide.

Acts of Violence

Tuttleman Counseling Services (TCS) recognizes the traumatic impact that riots and violence can have, even when we are not physically present or directly involved.  The recent events at the U.S. Capitol and other locations throughout the country are undoubtedly impacting the mental health and wellbeing of our Temple community.  We are here to help students navigate through these difficult times.  Please contact us at 215-204-7276 and/or click here to learn about the services we provide.
