Workshops are a great place for students to learn about skills, information, and resources around a variety of topics. Workshops also allow students who may feel isolated, disconnected, or alone to connect with others in a non-clinical setting.
There is no prior contact or screening required with the Counseling center to attend these drop-in workshops. Workshops are available to all currently enrolled UCI undergraduate and graduate students who are located in the state of California.

It is natural to feel stress, anxiety, grief, and worry during and after an emergency like the COVID-19 pandemic and continued concerns around anti-Black and anti-Asian violence and discrimination. Everyone reacts differently, and your own feelings will change over time. Notice and accept how you feel. Taking care of your emotional health during an emergency will help you think clearly and react to the urgent needs to protect yourself and your loved ones. Self-care during an emergency will help your long-term healing.
