STRESS IS
A NORMAL PART OF LIFE.


BUT IT DOESN'T
HAVE TO TAKE OVER YOURS.

We made anxiety toolbox to help students learn effective strategies for dealing with stress & worry.  As with physical health, you probably realize there is no "magic bullet" to make you suddenly well.  There are, however, exercises you can do regularly to improve your emotional fitness.  There are tools to use in hard moments, and people to help when you feel stuck.

 

Anxiety Toolbox contains evidence-based strategies carefully curated for you by clinical psychologist & professor, Caroline Mann, and psychology alumna, Meghan McKinney (whose first semester back was Spring 2020, so she knows a thing about anxiety).
