It's no surprise to anyone that being a graduate student can be a stressful experience. Taking care of yourself and seeking help when needed is an important skill that will help you maintain energy and focus. Resources for graduate students to care for their health and well-being include:

The Mindfulness Room: Open 24 hours a day during the fall and spring semesters. This is the one space on campus to simply rest, breathe, and relax with no agenda.

Headspace: All students have a free subscription to this mindfulness and meditation app with over 900 hours of content.

Counseling & Psychological Services (CaPS): Confidential counseling support. CaPS has therapists proficient in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Mandarin.

University Health Services (UHS): Confidential health services including massage, sleep assessments, and stress management consultations.
