About This Event

With Paula Nurius, UW School of Social Work , and Megan Kennedy, Director of the UW Resilience Lab and Co-Chair of the UW Student Well-Being Collaborative

Stress and related mental health struggles are of growing concern. The COVID-19 pandemic brought a sudden and rending effect on our well-being. Research on the effects of the pandemic on college and university students will be used to illustrate a "stress framework," to understand "normal" stressors alongside those galvanized by the pandemic. Our two speakers will discuss the ways in which our mind and body interact when stressed, the disparities among those most affected, and interventions to foster resilience and increase our ability to copy - in multiple ways - with the cumulative effects of the pandemic overlaying our current lives.
