Civil Unrest.
Economic Turmoil.

We're quickly going through a lot with the worldwide pandemic of COVID-19. And in the USA, we have social unrest, a struggling economy, and other social crises. Everything seems to be rapidly changing. Listening to the news or scrolling through social media can make anyone feel uneasy, maybe even scared. We here at UMSL Counseling Services know there's a lot of fear and anxiety out there. We can all do our part by staying home and listening to what medical experts are telling us.

Remember: You are not alone. We are in this together.

This page is intended to be a resource to help you cope with our altered world. We'll be updating it periodically as we learn of new online features to help us cope with everything that's going on in the US right now. 

Click on any of the ♥ tabs below to see resources about coping through this crisis. In addition, please check out this convenient digital handout with helpful resources during times of civil unrest.
