Welcome to The Counseling Center

Prep your coping skills for Winter Break!

After a semester that has certainly been unlike any other, many students are eagerly anticipating Winter Break. This is a time to rest, relax, and spend time with loved ones. While this time away from schoolwork can be restorative for many, we also know that Winter Break can present its own set of challenges. Emotional, financial, physical, and interpersonal stressors may all impact student mental health during this time away from campus. The continuing COVID-19 pandemic may also mean that students and their families are making difficult adjustments to their usual holiday routines.

Coping Skills During COVID-19

College can be a stressful time under normal circumstances, not to mention during a pandemic! The additional stressors associated with the COVID-19 pandemic can have significant impacts on student mental health. We've compiled a self-help document, 'Coping During the Coronavirus Pandemic' we hope will help students become more familiar with the resources available to them, including websites, apps, and campus supports. Head over to our Self-Help page under *Coping During the Corona Virus Pandemic* to explore self-help materials for this and other topics related to student mental health.
