Student Health and Wellness

Whether your goal is to improve your health, stay fit, find support, or feel better, the Student Health and Wellness team is here to help and empower you. Our services and programs are designed to promote a healthy lifestyle during your time at college and for years to come.

Impact of COVID-19 on Student Health and Wellness

The worldwide pandemic involving COVID-19 (coronavirus) has produced unprecedented challenges in the UConn community and around the world. Our main focus continues to be protecting all individual and population health, but there is now a shift to reducing the University mission as much as possible except for critical activities.

As Student Health and Wellness adjusts to this shift, please use the links above under Our Services to check availability of services and programs.

 

Managing Mental Health During the Pandemic

As each day brings new updates, possibly with worrying or confusing information about COVID-19 (coronavirus), we each respond to this stress in our own ways. Everyone is different—our various thoughts, emotions and reactions are normal in the face of such widespread uncertainty.

Please keep in mind we will not be conducting any in person programming while the university is operating in pandemic mode, and that some programs may not be available virtually.

Our website is updated! Check out all the ways you can connect with the UConn Recovery Community. Whether you are on campus, learning from home, or at a regional campus, we have something for everyone.

Significant health concerns arise because of racism: lack of concentration, anger, thoughts of suicide, anxiety, numbing, depression, trauma, heart disease, substance use, and hypervigilance, among others.
It’s important to:
-Acknowledge the pain
-Take time for yourself to rest and heal
-Reach out to your community
-Use your voice - speak out
-Find people to practice allyship
