University of Nevada, Las Vegas Resources

UNLV is offering a variety of mental health and counseling services to help the campus community process the painful school shooting that occurred on Dec. 6.

People often experience a range of emotions after experiencing such traumatic events. These feelings may include shock, sadness, numbness, fear, anger, disillusionment, grief, etc.

We encourage anyone dealing with the effects of trauma to seek the following services:

  • Students can fill out a student support form to gain access to many student support resources at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Or, if you’d like to discuss any other work questions related to an upcoming event, you can contact us by filling out this form, visiting the contact page, or scheduling an appointment using Google Calendar.
  • Any undocumented individual affected by the December 6 shooting is encouraged to contact the UNLV Undocumented Student Program for support at undocumented@unlv.edu or by visiting the Undocumented Student Program website. Additionally, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Immigration Clinic advises that it is in the interest of any non-citizen who witnesses a shooting to obtain immediate legal counsel. To achieve this goal, they have increased the number of counseling appointments with members of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas community to provide immigration-based legal screening and advice during this difficult time. This service is completely confidential. Please go to the clinic website to request an appointment for consultation.
