Many students are having reactions to recent events in the news (the earthquake in Nepal and the death of a young, black man in Baltimore followed by protests and unrest).
It is normal to have many different feelings (sadness, anger, powerlessness and an urge to help) in response to traumatic events. People react in many valid and different ways and can experience difficutlies with concentration, sleep, or managing emotions. These symptoms typically subside over time.
Here are some suggestions for coping: be kind to yourself, reach out to family and friends, attend to your sleep and your eating, exercise and limit exposure to upsetting media coverage.
Please also know that you are welcome to seek support from CCSD. Just call 831-2141 for an initial appointment.
