Additional Resources

Mental health resources

During the pandemic, mental health services matter, and resources are available to both UC employees and students. Services and therapy continue via telehealth operations.

  • The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) includes mental health services.
  • Students may access services via Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), the Student Wellness Office and University Health Services.

Coping with quarantine or isolation

It's normal to feel sad, lonely, stressed, angry and even bored amid quarantine or isolation. Being stuck inside is tough. We hope the below ideas and resources help you cope.

  • Create a routine that balances work and play. Find ways to add structure to your day, especially in the morning and before bedtime.
  • Talk with people you care about via digital means. Let someone know if you're not doing o.k. Remember that there are a number of health and wellness resources available to you.
  • Get creative without judgment: Draw, sing, write or dance.
  • Eat, sleep, shower and stretch. Wear your favorite outfit. Fill your room with light. Get connected to a cause you care about. Join a student organization.
  • Be active and exercise.
  • Take one moment at a time and breathe. Know that isolation or quarantine is  temporary.

Services are available via phone, email, chat and video chat. Limited walk-in service will be available in University Pavilion (Uptown Campus), Muntz Hall (Blue Ash Campus), and the Student Services Building (Clermont Campus) from August 17 through at least September 4, 2020.
