The Harrisburg University Counseling Center has created a new support group for those who juggle the challenges of being a full-time student and full-time parent.

This group will provide a network for HU student parents, and the HUCC staff will help facilitate the conversations.

The center designed this group to provide a safe and supportive environment for the large number of students that are parents, mostly graduate students. The pressure of juggling childcare, school, and employment is intense. And the group provides a place for students to connect and share experiences.

Parents can expect to find peer support and to hear shared experiences. Peers may be able to share coping mechanisms and be comforted by shared experiences and challenges. And parents can connect with resources inside and outside of HU.
