As you approach a finals week, Student Affairs reminds you that we are thinking of you during these unprecedented times. We encourage you to stay connected while social distancing, utilize self-soothing and coping resources, and practice self-care tips as you structure your day. We hope you can use these tools, resources, and strategies to not only help you get through this finals week, but continue to prioritize your mental health in the days, weeks, and months ahead.
The Office of Counseling and Health Services offers free, confidential counseling services to currently enrolled full-time undergraduate and graduate students. Teletherapy services will be offered via HIPAA-compliant Zoom (video chat) and will be offered with an emphasis on addressing a student’s immediate concerns, with a particular focus on problem-solving and symptom management. In cases where a student may not be able to connect via Zoom, telephone sessions will be offered as an alternative. To schedule an appointment, please contact the Counseling Center.
If you are seeking immediate support with a crisis, the Crisis Textline is free and available 24/7. Additionally, the ComPsych® GuidanceResources® program is available to all graduate students and offers 24/7 confidential support, resources and information on a variety of topics. If you are seeking non-crisis, peer-to-peer support, the 7 Cups of Tea is an online and app-based service offered at no cost to Drexel students.
Virtual Care Resources:
The Counseling Center offers additional resources that may be helpful in processing your thoughts and emotions, as well as advocating for change. In addition to the services provided by Counseling and Health, you may find additional information about academic, personal, and University resources, both on and off-campus described on DASH. Finally, for more resources related to Coronavirus, please review the Dornsife website.
If at any time you need additional support, would like to share a resource with us, or if you are not sure where you can get the support you need, please do not hesitate to contact Phi Nguyen or Michelle Quigley.
Be well and take care,
Michelle (McDermott) Quigley
