Online Mental Health Resources

During this time of living apart, on-line classes, change, and uncertainty, Counseling Services offers a series of resources to use wherever you are.

We are all challenged these days to stay focused and be hopeful. We can meet these challenges by taking steps to create positive mental health.

We hope these resources are helpful in creating a sense of calm and confidence.

Stress & Anxiety

The shifting world we are now a part of can cause stress and anxiety. Some stress is inevitable and not all stress is bad.

Anxiety or panic, on the other hand, can send us in unhelpful and even scary directions.

Here are some ideas on positively managing stress and staying resilient.

Relaxation & Meditation

Below are a series of guided meditations offered to provide space in your day to pause and refocus on calm.

When we physically relax, we are able to think more clearly and rationally. Creating a practice of physical relaxation begins the process of creating new ways of thinking and responding to distress.

Counselors on Coping

Everyone has mental health, and everyone has ways to cope. What are yours? Consider your list.

  • What helps? Are there things you can add to this list?
  • Are you choosing positive coping strategies?
  • Are you taking time each day for some level of self-care?

Listen to how some of our counselors are coping in their own lives.
