Supporting Students During COVID-19
It is understandable that you may experience anxiety or concerns related to the pandemic and its impact on our day-to-day lives. The CDC has created a webpage with resources and information on coping with the challenges and stresses associated with COVID-19. We have compiled some additional resources and supports that may be of assistance to you.
If you are having suicidal thoughts or are experiencing an emergency, immediately call 911 or reach out to a crisis hotline. Text the crisis text line at 741741, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, or call the Community Crisis Response & Intervention line at 833-364-2274. These resources are available 24/7.
