Students as Caregivers
Think that keeping your grades up and paying your bills is hard enough? Try doing all that while raising a child or taking care of an ailing family member — or both! There are no easy solutions, but there are resources on campus that can help. You'll find information about many of them on the Students with Children website, which covers much more than just childcare (in spite of it’s title!).
When stress becomes harmful...
We all experience stress to different degrees in different situations, from the small to the large. Knowing how to handle stress before it becomes out of control is the first step.
Have an exam coming up? Deadlines you can't seem to make? Always getting distracted? Worried about your academics? These factors could all greatly increase the amount of stress you experience.
People that already have a lot on their plate, experience stress management issues more often. It is important to consider the additional struggles already faced by International Students, First Year Students, First Year Graduate Students, Students with Disabilities, along with students belonging to marginalized groups.
You are not alone, we are here to help!
