Dear students,

With just days left in the semester, it is very common for students to feel stressed or overwhelmed. Remember the free resources below to help you manage this challenging time, and remember there are people behind them: we are here to help you.

Sometimes you or someone you know may need help right away. There are resources for emergencies, too.

Stay healthy, Wolverines,

Robert D. Ernst, M.D.
Chief Health Officer
Associate Vice President for Health and Wellness in Student Life
