Coronavirus (COVID-19) Support

As the situation around COVID-19 continues to develop and rapidly change, it is normal to feel anxious, overwhelmed, and uncertain. These resources are designed to support various needs you may be experiencing and will be updated as new 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.

Emergency Assistance

If you perceive an immediate danger or risk of suicide, call 911 for immediate assistance.

Students can also reach mental health support 24 hours a day on the UD Helpline or the Crisis Text Line.
