Gays on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown

Okay. I should really stop it with the crazy titles, but they are just so much fun (I spared you last week, though--our wily treasurer really wanted to call the event "Gaym Night"). The full title of the event we have planned this week is "Gays on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown: Mental Health Issues and the GLB Community". Dr. Alan Glass, Director of Student Health and Counseling Services, will host this discussion on Tuesday, February 7th at 8PM in the NEW Student Health and Counseling Center Center on the South 40. Don't go to the old one next to Malinckrodt! The new facility is located in the basement of Forsyth House, which is accessible from Shepley Drive. Forsyth House is the very first dorm on the left when entering the 40 via Shepley Drive. Once you enter the basement it will not be hard to find us in the classroom located right off of the main lobby. Issues of mental health are rarely discussed in the specific context of gay, lesbian, and bisexual college students, so we hope that the dialogue can raise awareness about these topics and offer WashU students a valuable resource. We have worked with Dr. Glass many times in the past, and his presentations are always interactive and highly informative. If you have any questions about this event or Pride Alliance in general, please e-mail us at this address. I hope to see you on Tuesday!
