Health and wellbeing

Grad school can be difficult. We are a community: all members of the group share many common experiences, and we can help each other. If you need help, please ask! You can ask your peers, your advisor, or your mentors.

If you want help finding additional academic mentorship please ask.

For issues that need professional help, the UC has many resources available including free counseling. Many members of the group have used these or similar resources.
