U-M Counseling and Psychological Services

We fully support all CDC guidelines around social distancing.  At the same time, we know that for many students, particularly those who struggle with depression and loneliness, a recommendation to distance from others can take the form of increased social isolation.  This isolating behavior can increase mental health symptoms.  We encourage you to be aware of these possible concerns, continue to build relationships in new ways, and consult with us as needed.

This American Psychological Association publication provides information on social distancing, quarantine, and isolation.  Topic areas include:

  • What To Expect
  • Vulnerable Populations
  • How To Cope
  • What Happens Next
  • Tools And Resources
