Coping with Stress

Whether you or our family has been touch by the COVID-19 virus or not, you may be feeling stressed or anxious by what is happening across our community, the nation and the world.

The good news is – you are not alone. Many of us are dealing with various emotions related to COVID-19, the continuous news coverage and messaging coming at us from all sides. There are resources available to the NSU community that can help.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has posted informational tips on how to cope with stress during infectious disease outbreaks. You can access that information online.

Additionally, you can find information on managing stress and anxiety on the CDC site here.
