As the situation around COVID-19 continues to develop and rapidly change, it is normal to feel anxious, overwhelmed, and uncertain. We at CCSD would like to provide resources and support for our community and will continue to update this page as further details emerge.
In addition to caring for basic needs, we hope you are able to maintain a sense of community and connectedness during these difficult times. Attending to academic/work-related obligations remotely can feel very isolating so don’t forget to reach out to friends, family members, and loved ones. Continue to monitor the situation, but be mindful of maintaining a positive outlook, having perspective, and knowing when to seek additional help if you feel overwhelmed.
It is also important to work as a community and be thoughtful in sharing resources. Please be considerate of people who are most vulnerable, and reach out in support to those who need it.
We will continue to update our website, and we are available to provide remote consultative services at this time. Please call our office during regular hours, or call the UD Helpline (302-831-1001) if you experience a crisis. You can also text ‘UDTEXT’ to 741741 for text support. Please see our Resources page for self-help links which we will continue to add to. For official university sources and to receive updates, visit www.udel.edu/home/coronavirus/
