How can we support you and how to refer people to OVA
Other types of presentations* by OVA:
There are times when groups of people may be impacted by the loss of a member of the CU community. These circumstances may be painful and we all have our ways of navigating grief and loss. If anyone affiliated with the University would like to have a time for people to gather and hear about campus and community resources as well as self-care, OVA staff, in partnership with either Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS) and or Faculty Staff and Assistance (FSAP), can facilitate or be present for these group resourcing sessions.
*These presentations will be tailored to meet the needs of specific audiences. We can attend a class, staff meetings, student group meetings, community events or any format that meets needs. These sessions are not to debrief the loss, more to talk about self care, various ways grief may impact people, and offer support resources. Please contact the Office of Victim Assistance to discuss your needs and schedule a presentation.
