The current global crisis brought on by COVID-19 has impacted every member of the University of Michigan community and we at CAPS acknowledge the profound influence it is having and will continue to have on our collective future. That said, a grief response is an entirely expectable and typical reaction, and in any endless number of ways. In fact, the “loss” is staggering and the expression “the whole world has changed” is not entirely inaccurate.
UM CAPS wants to extend our support and commitment to the UM community as we navigate this difficult time in which so many individuals and communities are being impacted by COVID-19. Students may have a variety of reactions including (but not limited to) fear, anxiety, stress, confusion, isolation, uncertainty, and depression. Please check back in on this page as we add information on the following specific mental health concerns and the connection to COVID-19.
