Counseling Center




 To: SUBR Community


In the aftermath of Ms. Cheslie Kryst's apparent suicide on this past Sunday, we send prayers, warm thoughts, love, and light to her family, friends, and admires.  If you or someone you know is dealing with suicidal thoughts and/or feelings, PLEASE reach out and talk to someone.  You can also contact your University Counseling Center (UCC) by calling 225-771-2480 or emailing us at  You can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255(TALK).



In addition, if the recent Bomb Threat the Jaguar Nation encountered yesterday, or if you know someone at one of our many HBCUs who have experienced a Threat, your heightened anxiety, and hypervigilance is normal!  Your UCC staff is available to assist!  We will continue to offer walk-in as well as scheduled appointments throughout next week.  Contact us or visit our webpage at for relevant information on anxiety, depression, and relaxation apps.
