​Resiliency Tips for Students During the Coronavirus Outbreak

The coronavirus pandemic has created a variety of concerns and uncertainty specific to students, not only in juggling your new and different learning responsibilities, but also in maintaining your well-being and in helping those around you.  

Dr. Kate Felice has put together some practical suggestions and resources here to help you in keeping yourself mentally, physically, and emotionally healthy.  Some may be more pragmatic for you than others, and that’s okay.  Any effort toward self-care is a useful one. Remember that the only way to effectively do all that you need to get done, particularly during challenging times, is to be aware of your own wellness and take care of yourself.  ​
