Support students by encouraging self-care
This was an email sent to students from UW-Green Bay Student Affairs on October 18, 2022.
UW-Green Bay Students,
The fall semester is always a whirlwind of activity, which can be exciting but also stress-producing. It can be all too easy to ignore the signs that we’re not taking adequate care of ourselves, and instead choose to focus on classes, work, family/friends, etc. University leadership wants you to know that we’re here for you when you need us. We have a variety of resources that our students can easily utilize.
Understanding that sometimes it’s hard to reach out in-person, students can now access a Self-Report Form on the Phoenix Cares website. If you are a student in need of assistance, simply fill out this form and you will be connected to the best person or resource to get you moving in the right direction.
Have you ever been worried about a student or friend on campus? Students are in an ideal position to recognize when someone is struggling emotionally and may need help. Kognitois an online simulation that lets you practice conversations with a virtual student using AI technology. UW-Green Bay is making this program available to faculty, staff, and students to help create a safer and more supportive campus. To access this free resource, please click here.
The UW-Green Bay Wellness Center, in partnership with Prevea Health & Agnesian Work/Wellness, is staffed with compassionate professionals who specialize in working with students to overcome challenges while achieving personal wellness. We welcome the opportunity to assist you in developing techniques for managing any stressors you are currently facing and that may be getting in your way of living your best life. To schedule an appointment with a counselor, simply call:
- Green Bay and Marinette – 920.465.2380
- Manitowoc and Sheboygan – 920.924.0614
Please pay attention to your needs. Self-care is important and best practiced EVERY day. Eat well. Stay hydrated. Go outside. Be with friends/family and people who make you smile/laugh. Get enough sleep to adequately fuel your day. Remember we are here to help when needed.
UW-Green Bay cares,
Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
