Staying grounded while so much is uncertain can be difficult.
We don’t anticipate that suddenly the uncertainty around the virus, political unrest, racial injustice, financial wellbeing and the academic year will disappear. But there are ways that we, as a community and individuals, can work to support our health and wellbeing despite the overwhelming stressors around us.
Healthy Heels, along with many of you, continues to participate in groups and advise administrators about the collective impact that policies and practices have on wellbeing. We are all doing our best to ensure that when decisions are made, administrators have been reminded of how their choices affect the health of us all. Thank you for using your voice to advocate for the world you want and need.
Of course, none of us have a full control over the broader world. So in the interest of us all controlling what we can, Healthy Heels is offering a nine day mental health email course. Each email includes:
Coach’s message from Dr. Allen O’Barr, CAPS director
Proven mental health strategy
Student testimonial about how that day’s strategy helps them succeed at Carolina
