October 25, 2022 — The start of the fall semester means we see fewer cases as many students are still getting familiarized with the campus, enjoying their freedom, and making friends. Students tend to have more of a buffer for their mental health. 2021 saw an increase in cases primarily due to more students isolating because of COVID-19.

Counseling and Prevention Services (CAPS) has designed Mental Wellness for Students cards to promote mental health. Each card includes simple, practical tips that encourage students to engage and connect. Today's card focuses Emotional Self-Care. Learn how to enhance emotional literacy, navigating emotions, increasing empathy, and managing stress effectively, such as:

 • Allowing for quality time with others whose company you enjoy

 • Maintaining contact with valued others

 • Giving self-affirmations and praise

 • Allowing for feelings and expression (laugh, cry, etc.)

Take a moment and think of an activity of emotional self-care that you want to focus on and how you will engage in it. Identify when, where and how frequently you will engage in the activities. Share with someone in your social circle and ask for their support to encourage you to engage in your emotional self-care.
