Health & Wellness Resources

As we approach the end of Fall term, GNSS realizes how this can be an especially difficult and stressful time for students. Graduate school is hard. It is important that we take care of ourselves, maintain balance, and speak to someone if we are distressed.

Here are some resources available to all students:

Our first Lunch & Learn this year was on Health & Wellness for graduate student.  Great information can be found in the presentation posted and available on Quercus.
