Stone Center Counseling Service Groups & Workshops

Making connections with others can be great for feeling less isolated and more supported.

This year we are offering small in person groups, 4-5 students, in spaces where we can accommodate everyone safely, while masked. We will also offer some workshops and groups over zoom.

Feel free to reach out to the group contact people if you are interested or have an idea for a peer support group.

LGBTQ+ Support Group

This group is open to students of all intersectional identities under the LGBTQ+ umbrella.  It is intended to be a confidential, safe space to receive and give emotional support around gender and sexuality.  Together we will explore topics such as relationships with family, partners, coming out or being out, and help you embrace all parts of who you are. If it is challenging to be who you are when away from Wellesley, this might be the right space to connect with others to strategize ways of coping.

  • RSVP: Jan Park jpark23
  • Co-led By Jan Park and Ian Ljutich
  • This group did not have enough students to run fall term.  Please reach out if you are interested in being contacted for a future group offering.  Date and time TBD
