Resources for an Uncertain Time- President Jonathan Holloway

November 2, 2020

Dear Members of the Rutgers Community:

These are, understandably, challenging times for all of us, and we want you to know that at Rutgers, we are all here for one another.

The global pandemic and its economic impact, civil unrest, the inability to make plans and the general uncertainty about the future, upcoming exams, holidays right around the corner, and tomorrow’s national election can certainly add to personal stress and anxiety.  These are difficult times to which each one of us is reacting or responding in our own ways.

Even though we currently are physically distanced, the fact is we are a community—a beloved community in which we look out for one another.  Each of us has heard from members of the community who are struggling in one way or another, and we want to help.

On behalf of the university, we thought that it would be important to remind you that there are mental health resources available to every member of our community.  Those resources include access to professional counseling and advice, or other help if you think you would just like someone to talk to.

We have all focused on the importance of good public health practices to stop the spread of the coronavirus. We also need to remember to take care of our social, emotional, and mental health.

For more information about the resources available to you, see below.

Please stay safe, stay well, and remember to take care of yourself.
