Who We Are.
The Women's Services and Resources office provides services and information about women's issues to the BYU community. We provide events, consultations, and support groups to empower women to be successful in their personal and academic journeys. Through our office, students can access information about services for women and various community resources. Even though we are equipped to mainly serve the female population, we enlist men as allies in creating a culture of nonviolence and welcome their concerns in regard to the women in their lives.
Here at Women's Services we want you to know that we support you in the challenges facing women. The support groups and consultations we provide are designed to aid you in dealing with issues big and small, from breakups to eating disorders and everything in between. We are here to buoy you up in your quest for happiness and success with the resources we can promise: educated staff members and trained counselors who are here to be informed friends, the most current information on your concerns, and an office committed to helping you live a life of authenticity and joy.
Women have an innate power to create bonds with other women through communication. Women's Services is here to facilitate real, deep connection between women because we will address the issues you can't talk about with anyone else. Struggling with an eating disorder, an abusive relationship, a partner with a pornography problem, or just the stress of life can be isolating and heartbreaking. You are not alone. We are here to link you to other women who have faced with similar concerns, as well as professionals and additional resources. We will inform you of all of your options for dealing with any issue and help you determine what is right for you. Women's Services is a safe place to come and share your story and find understanding and acceptance.
We work hard to create a comfortable environment in our office, support groups, and events where you can be yourself, and in doing so, find similarities with other women. It is only when we allow ourselves to be real, flawed, quirky human beings that we can really connect. We can also link you to others through various volunteer opportunities on campus and in the community.
We won't be satisfied if you get involved with us and come out no different. We are committed to providing services that empower you to be who you are, say what you feel, and do what you want and need to do. You can be assertive. You can be confident with your identity, your body, your life. We can offer perspective in the things you confide in us to give you an idea about where to go from here, what's coming next with your concern. We can give you the tools to deal with the unexpected in healthy, positive ways; we can provide hope.
