Feeling stressed out over coronavirus?
The events we are all living through are unprecedented and changing daily. The huge volume of COVID-19 new stories and social media posts might feel overwhelming and confusing. And then there’s the disruption to your daily life, taking classes remotely, fear for loved ones, and your own well-being. You may be feeling anxiety and increased stress, which is a natural and expected response to any pandemic. If you’re like most students, you care about your own well-being, your loved ones, and community.
