• Managing Stress and Anxiety

Due to UConn’s preventative response to reduce the spread of Coronavirus, our guiding principle is to support students while protecting the health of our community.

Beginning Monday 3/23/20 through the end of the spring semester, we REQUIRE that students call our office at 860-486-4705 before walking to the office. SHaW-Mental Health has moved to exclusively telehealth (online) or phone platforms for providing services to students for the duration of the semester. 

*Please note: If you do not have access to a quiet location and need a place to have a telemental health services, space has been made available on the 4th floor of Arjona. Please call ahead to reserve the space.*

For students already in services at SHaW-MH:

  • You will receive an email or a phone call from our office providing instructions about your next scheduled appointment with your provider. Please check your UCONN email for this notification in the upcoming days. 
  • If you have not received notification from our office, please call in advance of your next appointment for instructions about your next scheduled meeting.

For students seeking services from us:

  • We are here for you! Our office will be moving to primarily same day consultation appointments for students reaching out for support to help assess your needs via phone or telehealth.
  • Our goal will be to make sure that you have the support and resources you need whether that is with us or a provider in your home community.

For mental health emergencies:

  • We will continue to be available for crisis assessment 24/7 through the end of the semester.
  • To access this, call our office and you will be connected with a provider.
  • If you are experiencing a serious and immediate life-threatening crisis, please call 911 or the UConn Police Department immediately

While we are in the midst of uncertain times, please rest certain that we at SHaW-MH are deeply committed to finding the best ways to support the health of our community. Be on the lookout for ongoing messaging about ways we will be working to support UConn. If you have any questions do not hesitate to reach out to us.
