Navigating Stress and Seeking Balance

Do you feel overwhelmed?  Are you experiencing low mood or energy, and having difficulty focusing on your coursework?

You are not alone.

We are here to support students who are experiencing stress around school/life balance. This is an open group with sessions being built upon the next but also can be impactful if attending only one. Great fit for anxiety.
