We are this year’s Student Support Committee! We know that it’s easy to feel isolated and overwhelmed with online school and COVID, but it’s important to know you’re never alone. Our mission is to remind you that you don’t have to handle everything internally- that’s impossible! We want to hear what matters to you and offer regular articles about ways to manage and cope. No shame, no judgment, all love. (This is not counseling but rather researched peer advice.)

Don’t feel afraid to experiment and find what works for you!
