If you need counseling and support spaces for a political debate, do you really belong in college? Shouldn’t you be sitting in a quiet room somewhere?

University hosting presidential debate offers counseling to discuss ‘impact of recent national events’

Case Western Reserve University, which will host Tuesday’s presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, has set up “presidential debate support spaces” to help students express their feelings about the debate, controversial events occurring around the country, and the upcoming election in November.

In preparation for the debate, CWRU has arranged for “presidential debate support spaces” where “students can discuss the impact of recent national events, including the presidential debate and upcoming election.” The sessions will be hosted by the University Health and Counseling Services staff, however, the “support Space is not a substitute for psychotherapy and does not constitute mental health treatment.”

The first support space session occurred Monday, a full 36 hours before the debate was set to begin. Students can still sign up for any of the remaining seven virtual sessions from Tuesday night until October 9. The sessions are available for all students from undergrad to professional students and the university only asks that everybody use “respectful dialogue.”
