Let’s take care of ourselves and each other, mentally and physically
Breds, we are at a unique point in history. Multiple crises are occurring simultaneously, with people needlessly dying as a result. During this unprecedented, tumultuous and stressful time, we must take care of ourselves and each other.

We value your lives. We mourn for Breonna Taylor and her family, as well as the countless lives that have been taken unjustly over the last 401 years. Because of that, we need you to do your best to care for yourself and others today. COVID-19 remains a lethal threat, but your mental and emotional wellbeing is critical, as well. Please take advantage of the Center for Emotional Wellness if you’re feeling unwell or if you need someone to help you process the anger, frustration and heaviness you may be feeling now. Keep a close watch on your fellow Thorobreds, as well. If you know someone is struggling, talk to them and help them get help. It’s OK to feel the things you’re feeling and it’s OK to ask for help. The burden of injustice is too heavy to carry alone. 

Yesterday we had campus-wide conversations about bringing forth change. Let’s remember the words and ideas brought forth and put them to work. Let’s remain safe on campus or in your off-campus residence and continue the work that needs to be done. Let’s keep ourselves healthy, mentally and physically, so we remain strong in the fight for Breonna Taylor and all those before her.

To contact the Center for Emotional Wellness, call (502) 597-6271 or email anthony.andrews@kysu.edu.
