Going back to school this year is going to feel different for a lot of students. COVID-19 guidelines are continuing to change, and it might feel difficult to stay on top of everything you have going on in your life. We’ve put together some wellness resources to help support you and to help navigate how to deal with the return to school.
It’s totally okay to have mixed feelings about going back to school. You might be experiencing things like:
- Excitement about joining extracurricular activities or volunteering
- Changing moods or depression
- Joy with friends or other personal relationships
- Feeling like your body has changed, or having trouble with how you see your body
We’re here to help reassure you that you’re not alone and we want to support you in whatever way we can. It’s important to be kind to yourself and take a step back when things are feeling overwhelming for you. If your feelings are starting to take over your everyday life, reach out and get support whenever you need it.
