Groups

Counseling Services staff facilitate several groups each academic term. Although some groups, such as Adjustment to College and Substance Abuse are long standing, we welcome suggestions for groups that could be started on North Carolina A&T State University's campus. Group suggestion form (e-mail or send to Counseling Services at 109 Murphy Hall)

AD/HD Support Group

Description
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD, can interfere with your academic progress by making it difficult to focus and being easily distracted; causing difficulty with organization and planning; increasing impulsivity. Though you may take medication for your ADHD, there may be residual symptoms. If you have ADHD this group is designed for you regardless if you are, or are not, taking medication. Staying in Focus can help you learn how to manage your symptoms better.

1 2 3 Relax

Description
Mindfulness is a method of training the mind that is growing in popularity due to the wealth of research and brain imaging studies demonstrating its effectiveness. Mindfulness involves learning to pay attention to the present moment rather than worrying or dwelling in the past. The practice is learned through simple exercises that strengthen attention and focus, and help you to manage and prevent stress.
