University Health Services (UHS) acknowledges the ongoing challenges we are facing in this country – in the past two days we have seen another shooting of a Black man go uncharged, and we are currently witnessing violence in Washington, DC. This is in addition to ongoing divisiveness, racism, a global pandemic, and social injustice. While some of these issues are longstanding and historical, we are living in unprecedented times. The current environment is highly stressful for many of us and, as a result, it is normal to experience a range of emotions, including feeling overwhelmed, scared, angry, or sad. In times like this it is essential for us to pay attention to what we need in order to care for ourselves. UHS is here to support you.
Here are ways you can connect to UHS to get support during this time:
