Knoxville (WVLT) - The shooting on the campus of Virginia Tech is expected to affect students emotionally across the United States so UT officials are making counselors available.
Dr. Victor Barr says for most students they will spend a lot of time talking to friends about the tragedy and what's happened, but if someone experiences long-term issues such as physical problems to anxiety to depression that is when he says a student should really consider coming to talk to them.
"Sometimes it's just useful to have somebody to talk to, particularly somebody who's not involved with you or a part of your life already. Sometimes it's nice to get another perspective on issues," says Dr. Victor Barr.
The counseling services office is located at 900 Volunteer Boulevard.
It's free for UT students and hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays.
