And the Survey Says…
In the Fall of 2019, Student Health & Wellness programs, funded through Student Medical Services, conducted a campus wide survey to better understand the habits, behaviors and perceptions of our student body. For a summary of the findings, check out the ACHA/NCHA survey page.

Bookmark It: Virtual activities
As the COVID-19 situation continues to affect our daily lives, it's more important than ever to stay focused and connected. Student Health & Wellness has created a page to provide virtual activities for all needs. There's some for quieting the mind, focusing on goal-setting or gaining much needed connection with others.

Stress Less
Stress is the body's response to any demand or change in the environment. Stressful events can be positive (such as a wedding) or negative (such as an exam), and the effects of stress can be beneficial or detrimental. To help relieve stress from everyday life, check out these helpful tips.

Foster Connections
Each week, the Counseling Services Graduate Interns are hosting virtual support groups. The Zoom sessions are scheduled for Wednesdays and Fridays and are intended to help you foster connections and find support for issues or concerns you might be having during this time of pandemic restrictions. Hope you'll join us for an upcoming session!

How are You Feeling Today?
ULifeline’s Self Evaluator can help you find out if a mental health issue such as depression or an anxiety disorder could be impacting your thoughts, feelings or behaviors. All results are confidential. If you are concerned about the results, please contact Counseling Services at (808) 932- 7465 or email: uhhcouns@hawaii.edu.

Deadline Extended
There's still time to submit your photo or written words to be included in the Anti-Stigma Video that the Na Kia’i O Ke Ola Suicide Prevention Program is creating. We want you to share your experiences with therapy or counseling to encourage others to seek support if needed in their lives. Together, we can help others!
