Mental Health during COVID-19

Supporting Your Mental Health in 2020

As humans, we have never been meant to live in isolation from one another. It’s completely normal and valid to have feelings of frustration, isolation, discomfort and disappointment as we navigate this time. 

Student Wellness is here to support our students holistically and safely through this time. Student Wellness services and resources continue to be available for the Fall 2020 semester.  View our services here.
